How wonderfully correct the Great Chief Inspector is in his astute conclusion. However, even he would be pleasantly surprised to discover that “something fishy” is not always a bad thing.
The atmosphere is buzzing with noise and chatter as bargains are being made for various selections from the fresh catches of the day.
Fortunately for me, members of my group understand a bit of the local language and seem adept at bargaining. I enjoy the scenery as they go about making purchases for what will turn out to be one tremendous feast for all of us.
Part of the experience here is to make your seafood selections and then have it prepared by one of the local restaurants located behind the market.
With our selections completed, a bargain is negotiated with a local smiling cook to prepare our meal.
Finding a table in an outdoor covered patio area, rounds of beers are ordered as we converse and listen to relaxing background music. Vendors come by with their wares but none of us are interested in souvenirs. For most of us, our souvenirs are our travel experiences we share like this one. Our group is made up of all different nationalities which makes this an even more fun experience for me.
Fond and delicious memories.
Proof that, your family and your home can be who and wherever you chose it to be.
With full stomachs and about seventeen beers later, we all agree this has been an awesome experience. For me, I cannot imagine there are too many places or restaurants in the world where so many people can have such a seafood feast for around US$100.
