Markets in Asia

November 28, 2010 § Leave a comment

Not the financial type of market, though the Asian ones are quite exciting, but pictures of veg at markets that I have taken over the years.

This pic was taken in Dundgovi, Mongolia. I like the contrast between needing a smog mask and buying nutritious food.

These smart pigs barged their way into the kitchen and got into a bag of powdered milk. I had to lure them out with Brussel sprouts. They were very pleased with themselves.

I mop again.
