These photos were taken at my local market. I told Marie that I would show her ours after her wonderful Montpellier ones recently. So today and tomorrow I am posting from the Kokopo market.
The women, often with babies and small children, spend all day here in the heat, selling the wares from their gardens. Many do not have any cover, as the place is in terrible condition. They are wonderful women - hard-working, spirited, joyous and very shy usually of the camera. Some of them won't look when you take their photo, but they all love to see the results, and giggle and blush when you show them. Their friends all come over too to see. So you end up being a pleasant distraction for them in their long day.
A new market is being built across the road so when it is finished I will post some photos.
