It is Tuesday for people like me who do not work, Wednesday for Mary Ann.
She is of course off supporting me at the University.
She gives me assignments in the morning, that sound sort of like this. “You should go check out the vegetable market”.
So, OK, today I was a scout of the vegetable market in Ajman. Very nice clean market with some veggies and fruits I have never seen, for instance;
Maybe I am just deprived, but I have never seen a cabbage this big. I felt like dribbling it.
When I asked what this is the guy said pumpkin. I mumbled “thats no pumpkin partner.
This wart looking thing had a name I could not remember.
So, other than the fact that there were new things for me to try, this market was quite like say Cuzco, just different stuff, and I did not speak the language, so it was tough to figure out what some of the stuff was. Sometimes all they would say is “cook and eat”. OK good enough.
Before I set off for the market I was sitting here at the computer and I heard bagpipes. Thought nothing of it until it hit me, BAGPIPES? WTF?
I went outdoors and found a parade forming of schoolchildren, with what must be the Bombero band leading the way. I did not ask to have my pic taken with anyone, they were asking me!
Check these out.
Anyway, it is only 1 p.m. here and I have had a wonderful, emphasis on FULL day.
