Welcome traveler, my name is Aziz, allow me to be your guide around this magical marketplace. I see you’ve arrived by magic carpet; a most civilized way to travel. Perhaps I could climb aboard and, if you permit, tell you a story or two as we weave our way into the souk.
Can you feel the heat? It’s always hot here with the scent of spices wafting on a soft breeze. There’s so much to see but I believe that everything your heart desires could be down this alley here… they call it Inspiration Avenue.
The most beautiful ladies have set up their shops here and they would like to share a treasure with a weary traveller. Perhaps it is you?
I know you’re curious now. What could it be? Well, take your time for a browse my friend, for the choice would be yours.
You gift is a voucher for a treasure from this store - but be sure to choose wisely for magic abounds from these ladies and who knows what secrets will be revealed by your choice!
However, there’s a small something they would like you to do in return, please sign their guest book and leave some words for they love to find out something special about their visitors and hear tales from other lands. On 15th February they weave their spells and conjure from the smoke the name of the winner. Be sure to leave some trail for them to follow should your name be selected.
I’ll leave you here to browse my friend and return for you soon. Namaste.
