March 12, Monday {alley ways & the medicine market}


Liv feeding her new little sister noodles.
Dried everything and lots of things I had no idea what they were, at the Medicine Market.
Dried anise in the front and cinnamon in the back.

Baby bump?
Incense burning at a city temple.  

Typical doorway to a family home in the city.
My father drawing a crowd again.
Carving a jackfruit for sale.
Typical alleyway with laundry and bicycles.

  1. I did get confused a second with the baby bump - I missed seeing Mazie's head at first!

    It looks like you got some great shots. I can't believe how big the cinnamon sticks are! I think my favorite picture is the alleyway and the clothes or the details of the cobbled street. I love pictures that are about everyday life.

  3. There is a saying in Chinese about southern Chinese eating habits:

    In southern China they will eat anything with 4 legs but the kitchen table and anything that flies except an airplane. . .

    Enjoy your final days here. Am praying that everything continues to go smoothly.
