Shopping for the exotic

27 Nov 2008 / 1 Comment / in Journeys

Lovely Strasbourg claims to be the Capital of Christmas 2008.

When I arrive I see people waiting for the shopping mall to open its doors for the day. Thinking of Damascus Souk I go in and look around the same way, as if everything were strange and all the details were deeply interesting.

We head together up an escalator under a pyramid skylight. The multimedia store Fnac’s crammed with gadgets and gifts, including Johnny Hallyday CDs and electric photo frames.

I leave.
