Smugglers’ Bazaar



Paddy spent a day in the Hash Hish Market in Smugglers’ Bazaar, an enormous

market full of a vast range of merchandise, just outside Peshawar in the Tribal Areas.

Pakistani police are not allowed to enter, and anything can be bought, from

huge lumps of hash to fake passports and counterfeit dollar bills.
