Market in Tlapa

We spent Thursday, January 3, in Tlapa. We went shopping in the market with Mom. Here's what the market looks like.

Faith and Mom, picking out fruit

This is the fruit shop where Mom usually buys fruit and vegetables. It's just a couple blocks away from their house, at N 1732'51.8" W 9835'00.3"

After buying fruits or vegetables, Mom soaks them in a solution of bleach water, to sterilize them. That's what the big blue bucket on the kitchen sink is for.

We stopped by a shoe store, where Faith Nam bought some clear sandals:

I looked at some shoes, but the prices are higher than in the U.S., so I didn't buy

You can get good roast chicken at this chicken stand

The tortilla factory is a mandatory stop on the shopping trip:

We got 2 kilos, at 5 pesos per kilo (9.18 pesos =  $1 USD)
