Carts in the Market
The old city is a maze of souks (markets). Not only are they very narrow but none are level they are all up and down. To stock these markets these narrow carts carry everything from produce to refrigerators. They all have a scooter tire fastened on the back with a heavy chain which seems out of place until you see a heavy load going down hill. The operator puts the tire flat on the ground and stands on it for a brake.
