Market Photos

I have decided to post some photos I took at the local market the other day.  There are more below the cut.  Enjoy.

    Awesome photos! When I was in Seoul I lived in Yaksu and there was a very similar market behind my apartment. Poor sanitation, indeed. I never bought anything but oranges.

    I buy all kinds of stuff, but I’m pretty healthy.

    Burr! Just look how those women are bundled against the cold. When we lived in Shenyang we saw many such scenes. We bought many fruits, which we peeled, and vegetables, which we cooked well.
    I like your photo for its vibrant color and cultural value.
