City on a grain of salt. Tuzla means a place of salt and it lays on top of the salt lake. It is suspected it has been there for around 7000 years as one of the oldest places in Europe.

How beautiful thy feet with pretty sandals

My new flip flops bruised my precious feet and after a day spent on the beach on my way back to hotel I was passing by these shoe makers and had to have one pair of sandals made for me. I can assure you they're so 'comfortable', soft and pretty.
Very friendly people, they offered us a cup of tea while waiting.

The women in their saris are beautiful, aren't they?? This woman is very industrious in her lovely blue sari.

It just looks like a mini-India, but here generally the men are in this trade.

Isn't that wonderful ? I mean, the whole thing : the beautiful woman in a sari, the idea of having shoes made for you, the cup of tea, the smiles ... some people are good at making this world a better place to live!
