The Dirtiest Mall N The Awesome Sichuan Opera

Hey Hey and a Big G'Day to you Today was pretty much the same as yesterday, it was a day spent walking the streets finding little nooks and crannys, entering department stores to stare at all the things we didn't need or couldn't afford if we did.

The difference was we decided to add Markets into the walk. As most would know, I love Asian Markets. The are so full of colour, strange aroma's and 'things' to see. We found several markets during the day, most were full of things you really didn't need to eat. We saw plastic bags jumping accross the footpath, soem with fish soem with frogs inside. There ware the usualy innards and outards squashed all over the floor with small children playing with them.

This day I found the worst market I have ever entered. It was so bad that even I felt my stomach crawl. The worst part is it was just down the road from where we stopped for lunch in a little hole in the wall wok em up. The lady had to run out of the shop to get soem veggies. We figured she was off to the market. So after lunch we decided to check the market out. BAD MISTAKE! The veggies were so old, dry and tired. The meat was hard, dry and fly blown and worst of all was near the end of it was the live chickens etc. Here the floor was covered in dry blood, feathers and inches high with grime. This I've seen many times and can actually walk through. But worst of all, the peoples living areas were down here. The 'yuk N filth' entered their tiny one roomed living areas. It covered their TV's and beds. I left actually feeling sick. It took some time before the smell cleared from my nostrils.

To be continued...tis time for a beer and some bbq....catchya in fonts real soon...shane
