and yes - those are my American tennis shoes in the photo- LOL- it can be cropped later- all of these blog photos are first pass unedited- you are here for the information the "art" comes later....
above the peppers and below the long beans....
and finally just as we were about done with the market we find the Mangosteens! and make a purchase!
from here we enter into more retail based shops and vendors - but even then things don't always look familiar to us- LOL
food preparation and places to eat as well as household goods and clothing-
we frequently spot Naxi pictographs which tell stories that we cannot read-
