Caravanserai

Car­avaserai is a spe­cial place where trad­ing car­a­vans can stop for a night and rest from their bor­ing jour­neys. At first car­a­vanserais were sim­ple road­side inns but lat­er trans­formed in­to leisure cen­ters, where tal­ent­ed dancers and ac­ro­bats could al­ways find a job.

Here we see a gyp­sy boy from The Waist Lands, per­form­ing a tra­di­tion­al "belt­ed" bel­ly­dance orig­i­nat­ing from his home­land.

Some­times the per­for­mances are so far out that many mer­chants try to lead their "camels" through that par­tic­u­lar car­a­vanserai just to see the fab­u­lous per­former they'd heard so much about. Of course it's very prof­itable for the car­a­vansarai's own­er!
