My teaser is from a novel I just finished reading, Theodosia & the Serpents of Chaos, by R.L. LaFevers. In this passage (on p. 285-286) the main character, British 11-year-old Theodosia Throckmorton, is visiting a marketplace in Cairo, Egypt, for the first time.

"Next we passed sweetmeats, then tobacco, then gold and silver trinkets as well as every color of silk imaginable, wrapped in brilliant bolts or hanging in colorful swags. As we turned the next corner we had to step back sharply in order to avoid being run down by a large lady dressed in violet silk riding a round little donkey."
