One thing we didn't plan on was finding a Chinese market set up across the street this morning. That was an added bonus. We had so much fun looking at all of the beautiful, interesting, and, frankly, odd things in each of the booths, and we bought most of our groceries for the week, which included baby bok choy, cilantro, garlic, red peppers, corn on the cob, onions, bean sprouts, broccoli, grapes, strawberries, blueberries, pineapple, quail eggs, duck eggs, chicken eggs, pork, rice, homemade noodles, grilled chicken skewers, fried chicken legs, and a variety of savory Chinese flatbreads. We passed on the hog's head, the live chickens, and the dental services. It was a great day and a perfect way to recover from our long train ride.

|The vendor at the market cut the skin and off our pineapple and |
removed the eyes, leaving us with just edible fruit that looked like art.
|Lunch from the market: a sesame cake, a spinach/dill cake,|
grilled chicken on a skewer, and Chinese flatbread.
|Clay was so proud of himself for helping to shuck the corn.|
