A Visit to the Local Market – RTW Blog #22

Yesterday I visited the Ben Thanh local market.  It’s a large market a couple of blocks from my hotel with everything from soup to nuts…..literally!

The first row is fresh fish and veggies.

And a young guy crushing ice to keep the fish cold.

The second row was primarily meat.

Along aisles were people serving meals.

The rest of the market was an assortment of fabrics, clothing and just about anything else you might want.

On the way back to the hotel I ran across this lady getting lunch on the go!

And this guy cutting your glasses lens to order.

Must be plastic lens!

More in a few days from New Zealand.
