Bazaar del Mundo

While waiting for a table at an Mexican restaurant in Old Town San Diego, we strolled through Bazaar del Mundo. This collection of shops used to be in the heart of Old Town until the owner lost her lease and had to relocate. I liked it better in the old location, but the wares are still colorful and authentic. Wish I could have brought back some of these paper flowers on the plane.

I should mention that all these photos save the one below were taken with the iPhone. This is the bazaar from the outside:

Bazaar weavings

I love these woven blankets. Yes, they’re selling Christmas stuff already, sigh.

Bazaar balcony

The exterior is designed to look like an alleyway (callejon) in Mexico.

Bazaar dishes

Everything is arranged so beautifully.

Bazaar flags

There’s a little cafe outside the shops and it was warm enough to eat outdoors that night. Boy, do I miss doing that! I took all these without flash, so that gives you an idea of how bright the place is.

Bazaar art

If all this color is causing sensory overload, here’s something a little calmer.

agave attenuata

An agave attenuata shot with the iPhone! I can’t believe the closeups you can get. I may just leave my little Canon at home when I travel and use this. I never take my Nikon, because airport security personnel almost dropped it once. I can’t imagine what pros endure when they take really expensive gear through airports.

Today is a holiday (Veterans Day) in the States, so I’ll be out doing stuff with Mr. Prose. I should be able to post a pic or two tomorrow, though. Have a good one!

    Love those plates!

    Enjoy your day off!

  2. I was going to say I love the colors of the flowers in the first pic, but then I kept scrolling down. All of the pics have lots of colors. Nice!

    Look at all those colors, I would be lost in there. Beautiful photos! Thank you so much for sharing all this with us. I had to go back and look at all of them again. I can imagine it is an assault on the eyes, but in a very good way.
