Now, I realize in the grand scheme of markets (especially for our friends in Japan), nothing here was that exotic or crazy, BUT it was absolutely disgusting to Riley, which made it all the more fun for me! Here are some of the things she saw.
Sides of pigs being schlepped in from a truck
Chickens--hanging upside down whole, with heads and feet
Rabbits--skinned, except for their "lucky" feet (see the far left animal)
Animals skinned with their bushy tails left
Snails--in the shell, alive and netted so they might not escape (although a few had). Maybe we should have tried the escargot offered on the ship!
There was also regular, tame things--like coffee! This is for our friends at Noble Coyote Coffee Roasters (my personal favorite is the Honduras Cafe' Bejucales).
AND, Riley got a beautiful sundress from this market that she wore to our last formal night dinner.
