Going To Market In Penang

The street markets in Penang look similar to the many markets we've visited in India and other parts of Asia. Some tables, umbrellas, stuff for sale and the usual mix of customers and hawkers. The one thing you can always count on is that whatever is for sale, it's local. We have yet to see a Sara Lee pound cake at a street market.

Fruit from Jurassic Park? Not seen in India -- at least not in Chennai -- hanging dried meat.

Seeing the shrimp man. Pick a tray, any tray, the sorting is all done for you. A wonderful rainbow of insanely bright candied fruit. The presentation is winning.

Piles of interesting ingredients. They looked like the contents of an old apothecary cabinet. And finally, we just can't seem to get enough of them, Angry Birds (hanging with angry fish, no doubt).
