7. The Old Umbrella Shop the cutest place to buy an umbrella



The Old Umbrella Shop is a heritage-listed store in central Launceston, northern Tasmania. Launceston is the third oldest city in Australia. This shop takes cutesy almost to the point of unbearable. There are lots of old-style toys, tea towels that middle-aged women will find strangely endearing and more kitsch books about birds and cats than you could ever wish for.   However, the name of the shop isn't some clever Alanis Morrisette-style attempt at irony. What it really specializes in is umbrellas. They come in all shapes, sizes and colours, with each one somehow managing to be more garish and brighter than the next. No more do the good people of Launceston have to settle for the bog-standard black umbrella they can pick one to match whatever they're wearing. Rihanna, no doubt, would love it.

8. Rope a Japanese schoolgirl-fetish shop



Shibuya, in Tokyo, Japan, has many interesting shops, stores, services and restaurants. But one shop that is talked about by many westerners when describing strange Japanese under culture is called ROPE. ROPE is a specinkgy store that sells things that are a bit different to your run of the mill average adult shop. At ROPE you can find school girls uniforms, school girls socks and shirts and other things that used to belong to school girls. But, the most popular items sold are used senior school girls panties. These are wrapped in plastic with a colourful photo of the girl they belonged to attached to the front. Yours for only 4000 yen (about $US40). You can even buy them in bulk! Packs of 10 available for a discounted price!   Having seen the other items available, like collections of photos of girlfriends for sale for 1000 yen, and that all the photographs available are perfect and seem to have been taken with the same camera, I'm convinced that the underwear probably didn't belong to the person in the picture. Especially as the gentleman behind the counter was preparing many more of these used panties to go on the shelf. So, who likes all this stuff? Well, the Japanese fetish for all things school girl is called burusera.

9. Gypsy Brides Market a market where you can get yourself a wife



Dressed in their finest clothes and gold jewellery, thousands of teenage Roma girls parade around by their parents at an open-air brides market. Wearing lots of make-up, the teenagers come to the traditional annual market in Bulgaria, hoping to find a husband and preferably one willing to pay a large amount of money for his future spouse. At the market in the village of Mogila near Stara Zagora, the price of a beautiful young woman is said to be several thousand levs/euros. Younger siblings come along too to play and eat sweets while one newly-wed couple belly-danced on top of an old car to show their happiness at finding a match. Several wannabe-brides joined in, showing their eagerness to be married. The event takes place on the first Saturday after the start of the orthodox Easter fast - the Day of Saint Todor, or Horse Easter. In 2009 the gathering attracted some 2,000 people who came from all over southern Bulgaria including Plovdiv, Pasardzhik, Sliven and Jambol.

10. Ka Firushi Bird market Kabul's bird bazaar



In Afghanistan, the keeping of birds as pets has long been a popular pastime. In one of the oldest quarters of the Afghan capital, Kabul, there is a bazaar that caters especially to bird-keepers. The bazaar is known as Ka Farushi - the "Hay Market". Ka Farushi is a narrow lane, lined with ramshackle mud brick buildings. It is located in a dusty quarter next to the Old City's Blue Mosque, near the main bridge across the Kabul River. This part of the city is a warren of tiny lanes where no cars can penetrate, so the air is filled only with the melodious sound of birdsong. In tiny open-fronted shops, shopkeepers sell canaries, bulbuls (nightingales), budgerigars and other songbirds.   While some shopkeepers here depend on their earnings to make a living, others - particularly the younger men and boys - often see it as a hobby.
