Sounds of laughter, children giggling, excited voices, advice about the ripeness of a strange fruit, voices speaking Chinese and Thai.
Strange sights of foreign vegetables, packages of foreign items written in Chinese. A big bin filled with small fish and a woman choosing the fish and putting them in a bag while her children squealed with excitement.
The weight of the Kabocha squash and the waxy feel of the cassava.
The experience of a different culture gives me new knowledge and an appreciation of the world around me.
