Beautiful painted floral decorations and arabesques graced the walls and ceiling.
The produce section of the bazaar was one of the best I think we've seen anywhere.
The colors and the sheer numbers of the peppers was absolutely mind boggling. I just wanted to take photo after photo of all the pepper displays. As it is, I took way more than I'll ever figure out what to do with but they were just so gorgeous, I couldn't stop.
like none we’ve ever seen before:
The sign said 'Association of Political Prisoners of Kosovo.'
Located in a rather isolated part of the mall was a statue of Mother Theresa that we had diffiuclty finding. Mother Teresa was a great woman, but this statue didn't quite live up to it. Thankfully, it was one of the few monuments we saw that was not defaced in some way or had graffiti sprayed on it.
I can't make up my mind whether it is one of the ugliest buildings I've ever seen or one of the coolest. One way or the other, I simply could not take my eyes off it! I totally agreed with the person who described it as 'looking like chain mail over Lego blocks with oversized burst footballs on the roof.' It was so horrible that it fascinated me. One thing is for sure, it will live long in the memory!
Our first impressions of the capital were decidedly mixed: the pluses were the fabulous market, the intersting and thought-provoking monuments and sculptures, the huge pedestrian mall and its walkability. The minuses were the hodgepodge of architectural styles and generally unattractive buildings.
