Santa Clara Market...
At the bus stop we pretended not to know Susan, who was busy taking pictures.
I like these pictures. The kids run out with wet squeegies and clean the windows for tips. Look at the people yelling at him from inside. Then the lady turned the windshield washers on him.
There was an enormous cabbage at this stand, and only this little guy was running it. We talked about the cabbage for a bit and then I told him that I wanted a picture of such an enormous cabbage. He didn't want HIS picture taken, just the cabbage.
Then he told me he knew some English. "Window is Ventana," he says. "And puerta?" I ask. "Door!" he yells.
We found a stand with the whole roasted pig. Wow.
I got a little excited. After eating a plate of the roasted pork and mashed yucca...and this incredible vineagar sauce over it...well, I was thirsty. I had a glass of alfalfa juice. With a little orange juice mixed in with it. Amazing. I was peppy all afternoon.
This is a clown that was walking down the street.
We went to the hardware store on the way back home. We had to finish our ice cream before we could go inside.
