No.15: Market day

 

15. Market day

I like the combination of anarchic mud and the more formal figures. Every eight days, Belo hosted a travelling market on sloping ground at the top of Market Street. On that day it seemed to rain more heavily than on any other day, turning the entire length of Market Street into a treacherous mud slide, especially of course for Westerners like myself, who were frequent visitors to this bazaar.
