The Arab Marché
It was our P Day so mom and I went down to the Vieux Port to go to the Arab Marché. It is a small sector near the port that gives you the feeling you are no longer in France. You can buy just about anything from fish to produce to hookah pipes. It is a fascinating place that I love to go to. It is not a place tourist gravitate to due to sanitary reasons, but I love going there. It is a part of Marseille that you realize just how the Arab culture has influence Marseille. Marseille has the largest Arab population in France. Most Arabs here come from Algeria, Tunisia or Morocco. I love the diversity of this city.
