A street market was held in the morning in the city center. Many women were selling vegetables, meat and others.

A young woman wearing a sinh was also working there. She was crouching beside fishes and bats. Yes, the bat was sold. I was surprised that bats were sold in the market. Apparently, the locals eat it. Yet I have never seen it on the menu when I entered any restaurants. It might be cooked as a home-cooked meal.
