The old market (bung) is falling down around our ears so thanks to the Gazelle Restoration Authority and finance from the World Bank, a new market is being built across the road. It is looking quite spectacular so I went for a closer look.
When you take photos of people working here you cause total chaos, so what with the calling out and the waving, I left before all worked stopped! People assume you are a tourist and call out “Ples belong yu we?” Which literally means “Place belong you where” or “Where do you come from?”
I went back on Sunday when it was quieter and the workers had gone, and took more photos. I will go back and photograph it when it is finished and in operation.
