No tourists here.

This was a rare treat - to be where travelers rarely go. I probably shouldn't even write about it but I couldn't resist sharing the experience. This was truly a look at how the system works with the producers, wholesalers and buyers of local produce doing their deals. Interesting to see that the women do most of the selling and the men most of the buying. They were dealing in 100's of lbs. not the usual market of one or two items.

The different colors and patterns of the clothing tell these people who's who and from what village. I just called them the flower, bird or pattern people. However, the men seemed to be mostly in embroidered bird pants.
