Field Note 1st of August
I’ve now circled the market a fourth time. People are getting used to me. It’s incredible how friendly, curious and heartwarming they are. I guess I am just their little ‘Faragn’ – a strange sighting this early in the morning. The food is incredible – it's fresh, sometimes too fresh – it stinks. Most of the stuff is prepared just the moment before it's sold. This market holds no shops but long tiled or metal tables that are used as preparation desks. In between fish that fell on the floor are desperately trying to make their exit.
