    Calf head

    Calf Head

    You will see all parts of the animals being utilized so there isn't any waste. I'm not sure if the eyes are eaten. I was waiting around to see how the guy dismantled the head but he was talking to much and didn't really get much done. Or maybe he noticed me watching him and didn't want to continue?

    How much garlic did you want?

    Garlic Vendor

    Alot of the vendors at the market only had a small amount of product for sale. I'm going to guess that they would be some of the poorer people bacause it wouldn't have taken more than a couple of dollars to buy all that this lady had to offer.

    Dried Fish

    You can find a selection of dried fish. The funny thing is that I don't remember see the fish drying anywhere. There must other villages that specialize in Fish drying and I didn't get to visit those!

    How much for these fish?

    Fish for sale

    Fish is quite popular in this area as it is on a Lake. Most of the fish that I saw was some sort of catfish. I know that Catfish Currie was one of my favorite dishes that I ate in Myanmar.

    Onion Vendor

    I guess she didn't have much customers for her onions yet. I walked by her a couple times as I worked my way through the market and I never saw anyone buy any onions from her.

    Hill Tribe ladies

    They seemed like they were discussing what they might need for the next week. But who knows they may have just been gossiping too!

    Cauliflower vendor

    It seemed like mostly the older ladies and any age of the men smoked the cheroots. You gotta love that fresh cauliflower.

    Tomatoes and more Tomatoes

    Lot's of tomatoes

    These tomatoes probably came from the floating gardens. Which are gardens that are actually floating in the lake.

    Nampan Market

    These guys used and ancient looking scale that must have been around since scales were invented! It was interesting to watch them haggle amongst themselves and watch goods and money change hands.
