More at the Market

Horses were everywhere on market day as they are used to bring goods to sell down the mountain such as coffee beans or tobacco. Then they carry the bought goods home. The people all walk and they climb the mountains without effort, whereas I was out of breath and had to stop at times while walking up the steep roads or tracks.

Above you can see the bread seller's cart in the market place. The tobacco is sold as "chop-chop" and the vegetables are carefully placed on stalls on on the ground so that they entice the buyers. Market day is a chance to catch up with friends as well as just wandering around and seeing the produce. I didn't get any photos of the really crowded back lanes ad there were just too many people. More later.
