Day 5: Fish Market

Monday 3/17/08

This morning some of us decided to explore the local fish market. The place was very busy, some people auctioning all types of fish and unusually colored crabs, others cleaning the fresh catch. We talked to a vendor about his business - he buys the fish from the fishermen and then actions it here. Like any other market you can find lots of food here, where locals go for breakfast/lunch (see image). There is an outdoor restaurant and I bought a fried rice dough (pamamantiria). It was delicious! Across from the fish market is another market where we found shells, more food vendors as well as charcoal and wood for burning. It was very hot and steamy.
