The Bird and Flower Market

sells just about everything except birds and flowers! The market encompasses several blocks and alleys near downtown. No birds or flowers, but we did see rabbits, turtles, hamsters, mice, snakes, spiders and cockroaches. And a first for us - a squirrel in a cage! Even C. and E. exclaimed "A squirrel in a cage?!!" I should've snapped a picture, but the thought of photographing a common North American critter didn't occur to me, even though it was in a cage. Although we're not interested in finding out what it tastes like, we will look out for squirrel (along with dog) on the menu!

Plenty of fish for the aquarium:

One of the market streets:

And to think we traveled to the other side of the earth for the chance to buy (albeit for far less money) one of these!
