Another shot from Sydney. We went to this place called Bazaar Beer Cafe and had a few beers and a pork knuckle just before the wedding party in the evening. It was a really charming place, nice beer, good food and some of the hottest looking barstaff around.
Anyway, we were talking about the word Bazaar. We know it means market and found it curious that it sounds very close to the Chinese word with the same meaning - "Pa Sah", and if I'm not wrong, even the Malay term for market sounds very similar "Pasak". It wasn't the beer talking, at least I don't think it was. A wikipedia search pulled up even more info. Anyway, we came to the conclusion that it must have been passed through the silk road and thus the similarities. OK that's it for me today.
