More Maidan

I went back to the Maidan this afternoon and found a slightly different scene to yesterday morning. Souvenir vendors are set up throughout the area, men in animal outfits pose for photos (for a fee) and several men and women were carrying pet pigeons, trying to coax people to have their photo taken with the birds (again for a fee). The place had a slightly edgy feel to it yesterday morning but this afternoon, it felt like a tourist attraction.

Would you like a photo with a panda on the Maidan?
