    Durian

    by elpariente Updated Dec 27, 2014

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Who has once tasted the "Durian", he will not forget it again in all his life
    For those who do not know it I'll tell you that has a very pungent smell, as blue cheese, in fact in many hotels and transports it is prohibited to take durian
    If you dare to try it once you will seethat it has a very rich taste and you will see how you repeat
    El que ha probado una vez el "Durian", no se le vuelve a olvidar en la vida
    Para el que no conozca le diré que tiene un olor muy penetrante, como el queso de Cabrales, de hecho en muchos hoteles y transportes está prohibido
    Si te atreves a probarlo verás que tiene un sabor muy rico y verás como repites

    The floating market - El mercado flotante

    by elpariente Updated Dec 8, 2014

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We left the hotel at night to be at the riverbank at 5:30, because there we would pick the boat that shoul take us across the river to the floating market
    In a small outboard where we were both of us and the pilot, we went up the river for twenty kilometres up to the to market.
    At the beginning it was dark, then we started to see how the sun started to appear in the horizon and to see how was gaining strength until we had an splendid sunrise
    On the banks of the river we saw people stretching, washing, moving, eating ... until we arrived to the market area that was an explosion of color
    Note for those who like photography: This is a magical place to take pictures because of its colorful, you visit it with the first light of morning and the people is very friendly
    Salimos del hotel de noche para estar a la orilla del río a las 5:30 pues allí nos iba a recoger el bote que nos llevó por el río hasta el mercado flotante
    En un fueraborda pequeño en el que íbamos nosotros dos y el piloto, recorrimos los veinte kilómetros por el río hasta llegar al mercado.
    Al empezar estaba oscuro, luego empezamos a ver como clareaba el sol que fue cogiendo fuerza hasta que tuvimos una salida de sol espléndida.
    En las orillas del río se veía a la gente que empezaba a desperezarse, lavarse, a movilizarse... hasta que llegamos a la zona del mercado que era una auténtica explosión de colorido
    Nota para los que les guste la fotografía : Este es un sitio mágico para hacer fotos, por su colorido, porque se visita con la primera luz de la mañana y por la amabilidad de sus gentes

    Purchasers or sellers ? - Compradora o vendedora ?

    by elpariente Written Dec 8, 2014

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The market seems timeless, it is a quiet place where the boats glide smoothly almost without moving the oars, no money is seen and you are not able to distinguish if they buy , if they sell or if the do both things

    El mercado parece un sitio atemporal, silencioso, donde las barcas se deslizan suavemente sin mover casi los remos, no se ve el dinero y al final no eres capaz de distinguir si compran, si venden o si hacen las dos cosas

    When you go through the channel you have the feeling that you are invading the privacy of those who live there but at the end what you see are big smiles and the greets of everybody when passing

    Cuando paseas por el canal te da la sensación que estás invadiendo la intimidad de los que viven allí pero lo que ves son grandes sonrisas y que te saludan todos al pasar
