Added the awning and placed the vehicle to see what it looks like. Sorry for the bad lighting.

Thank you Jerry for the suggestions. I still have to work on little details like your suggestions and trash and so on to add realism. I was thinking a pot of coffee/tea; but maybe that will go better with the carpet vendor.

Thank you Nick. In many of my reference pictures I see The "traditional" light blue burkas, but also other outfits with their heads covered. I guess not that strict taliban Muslims. In the second to last reference picture that I posted above you can see a woman to the left in the foreground wearing a dark brown flowery outfit. So basically I am doing a mix. I did find one figure with the traditional blue burka and will add it to the dio.

Wow. The carpet merchant is an excellent idea ! Brilliant. Nothing draws attention to the area of ops like that except maybe a coffee merchant with the silver bean cooker ?

Slow progress, but I have picked up again after summer:


Lighting is not the best, but you get the idea.
My carpet vendor stall is almost ready:
