to market to market

you don't see a lot of wazungu at the Kibilaroni market. it used to be quite dangerous, packed to the gills with people selling everything from 2nd hand clothing to live chickens. now much of the market has been cleared out and all the used clothing vendors have gone. they've moved to a new area of town, leaving the market for vegetables, spices, and dried samaki-fish. the fish is so smelly. stacks and stacks of dried, fried, and fresh fish of all shapes and sizes. there is the palm sized fried fish, the huge pyramids of snack sized barely bigger than your thumbnail, the nasty curled thing that almost looks like a giant cinnamon bun, and of course the enormous fresh tilapia and king fish glaring at you from their glazed eyes.
