A DAY AT THE MARKET
Sunday morning brought nice weather (temps in the mid 50's) and with it the people came out in droves to go to the market. It's a big thing here. Imagine Frankfort Fest, only larger! There are were 1,000 to 2,000 (we think, maybe more) booths everywhere. Not to mention the many thousands of people who were there buying things. They sell everything there. Clothes, seed, flowers, fruits, vegetables, meats, fish (full ones, with the heads and eyes still attached-yum yum), etc. You name it, and you can probably find it or something close to it. I cannot imagine what the place looks and smells like during the hot summer months. All in all it was an experience to see the dynamics of the people and how they live. After this day, all I can say is where is my Jewel-Osco and my Target? I miss you sooooo much.
