Saturday at Mercado Benito Juarez

So many colors and textures at the Mercado Benito Juarez in Puerto Escondido, Mexico.

The meat aisles smelled of fresh blood.  I didn’t quite have the courage to take close ups.  There were heads.

Hydra was drawn to music playing across the street and we went out and stood and watched.  There was a lot of traffic on the narrow street, and people lined up in the little strip of shade on the opposite side.

And we pause for a juice break.  That’s one of the best things about this trip…the abundance of inexpensive fresh juice.  Kitty has toronja (grapefruit), Hydra’s naranja (orange) waits for him while he videotapes, and I have made considerable progress on my sandia (watermelon).  Yes, wow.  A huge serving of juice for a little over $2.  There is no Jamba Juice in this town.
