    ... with me everywhere so that if anyone asks me 'sir, sir, you want buy chicken/DVD/farm?' I can be like 'nope, sorry, I've spent all my money on vanilla soap...' Zoe: reunited with mum at last, so today we did our first tour together the mystical magical Spice tour. First we saw ginger spice, I thought the guide was having us on, turns out he was. Sad face.

    ... and vegetables coexist side by side with indoor shops selling jewelry, soccer jerseys, even blenders and irons. We bought several packets of spices to take with us, as we are about to start cooking regularly again in South Africa and Europe. The meat and fish market was the most fascinating area for me, though. Wooden counters displayed gleaming fresh fish, and vendors prepared the fish for sale right there--cleaning and descaling them, chopping off heads ...
