To market, to market

LUSAKA, ZAMBIA — You can get anything at the Lusaka City Market.

You can get a dress made, photocopies, bible covers or, as the gentelman above did, a live chicken, who will swing docilely from your hand if you hold it by its armpits and tie its feet together. . .

Except, if you’re me, shy in crowded places about taking photos of people who don’t want their photos taken,  and with a not very good Nikon CoolPix camera, a decent photo.

The women at one of the butchery counters that run the length of the place (a couple of city blocks) didn’t want their pictures taken but said to feel free to take a picture of the piles of guts and hooves that are their wares . . .

guts

And this:hooves

And if that makes you sick . . .tired-of-sickness

More next time.
