Local Market on Thanksgiving Morning
On Thanksgiving morning we walked to the local market and got some fresh bananas for breakfast and that was a great treat for us as there are many different kinds. We know many of the market women now and also see many women we care for there so walking to the small. local markets is a joyful part of the day. You can also see a school child in the background dressed in her uniform with her hair in the customary bows.
The women have small market stalls that sell just a few things and there are many of them. It is a festive place with much joking and bargaining.
It is always a gentle reminder to be in another country for a holiday.
