We've been working on the morning shift at the temple so we haven't been to the Saturday market since we have been in Cochabamba.  We went last week and this week we decided to take a few pictures.  This lady pointed at me and said "no photos",  just after I had taken the picture.  Well this is how they sell chicken, pork, beef, and fish at the market.  I didn't get any pictures of the other things since this lady told me "NO".

This is the egg stand.  The eggs are really fresh, but you have to bring your own cartons or baskets to carry them home.

This is the cheese stand.  There are all kinds of cheese and you just have them cut off what you want.  It is really good cheese.

This is just a picture of some of the people and stands.  Notice the scale.

There are a lot of young kids with wheel barrows.  People fill up their wheel barrows with food and then these youngsters push them out to the waiting taxis.  They earn some money and people don't have to carry the heavy bags.

Down one of the streets with stands on both sides.

We loved this banana stand.  There were all kinds of bananas.  Interesting!!  It was a great day at the market and we got a lot of good vegetables and fruits for not too much money.  We'll miss the fresh produce when we get back to the U.S.
