It was Saturday. I read several articles that this fair happened on Saturdays and another day of the week, which I can't remember which. So, Saturday, 7 a.m. was in Birqash, a town in the middle of nowhere, after 1h in a taxi. When I arrived in town, I realized there was nothing. I made sure you were in the right place.
