A balloon a day…

A neighborhood market can sometimes be like the beating heart where all arteries lead to, the arteries being the longtangs or alley houses that surround it.

There is nothing you cannot buy. Live fish thrashing in buckets of water or witness sad clucking chickens doomed to be a family’s scrumptious dinner.

How about buying soy sauce in bulk which are stored in huge vats that come up to your waist? If curious, ask the vendor about the medicinal value of antelope antlers or penises he has on display.

Or you could just buy a balloon.

There is nothing like a balloon to brighten up your day.

I hope you’re having a good one.

    Yeah all too familiar and yet different, as each street seems to be. Just to be clear… you were talking Antelope Penis… not just antlers right?
