The Guardian series The Artists’ Artist featured street artists last week and let them nominate their favorite living artist in their field. Featured artists include Blek Le Rat, Aiko, Sickboy, The Faile collective and Swoon.
You may have to work your way through the flock of sheep being hustled down the street by your local shepherd on your way to breakfast, but the people are extremely friendly and helpful. Everything is cheap. You can get a nice four-ounce glass of cognac for three dollars. Shopping is not as extensive as some other locations, like Dubai, but they have the coolest hand-carved olive wood sculptures, and you can visit the many mom and pop factories that make them.
