Fishy Fossils
These are fish carcasses that have been flayed into strips and dried at main market in Sittwe, located in the far western state of Arakhine in Myanmar --they look almost prehistoric! The smell is pretty overwhelming and pretty much exemplifies the overall atmosphere of the Market--definitely a hardcore experience as the weight of 2,000+ eyes will be upon you if do not look Burmese since there are so few foreigners who venture to this part of the country.
