The tourism industry designates tourism souvenirs as commemorative merchandise associated with a location, often including geographic information and usually produced in a manner that promotes souvenir collecting...
Throughout the world, the souvenir trade is an important part of the tourism industry serving a dual role, first to help improve the local economy, and second to allow visitors to take with them a memento of their visit, ultimately to encourage an opportunity for a return visit...
Travelers may buy souvenirs as gifts for those who can not make the trip...
Thank you to Sue (Sue118), Len (Len1950), Andy (CanonAndy22), Neil (NeilWigan), and Dave (Mistere) for the UA given to the Widow's shots... Thank you so very much!

a nice tradition.. you would have seen a lot in Goa too.. I had shot a few pics of souvenirs there some 6-7 years when I went there.. Don't know if I still have those pictures with me.. will see if I have those, Chinga..
indeed an important culture.. which tells a lot about culture, its overall nature as well.. the colors used for example, how colorful they are here.. I mean it tells a lot about people who have made this, and tells about the whole place in general.. Not only that it serves to recharge your memory.. when you see them in your house with some attention, many images of your visit flash in your mind.. and not only that.. you show it to your guests, and you narrate how the shopkeeper looked, and 'oh I had to bargain for 5 minutes!!'.. Things like that.. This all, and many other experiences come alive..

I like the way you document things.. Images are simple but serve the purpose of small, small documentaries.. Things we see everyday but pass by them barely setting a keen eye on them.. whenever you visit a place, you dissect it in many elements.. architecture, boats, people etc and some other things like souvenirs..

I will definitely post some of sort of souvenir tomorrow.. Grin
