Defiant Shop Clerk

The female shop clerk seemed to reply in a defiant manner

Shot at Bailan Market in Taipei, Taiwan.

Of course, there are big modern supermarkets in Taipei. Yet it can not be so fun if I visited because there are many modern supermarkets around my home in Japan. Therefore, I walked around a local market called Bailan Market in Taipei on that day.

The small shops were side by side of the street in the residential area. And shop clerks worked in each shop. The articles were sold behind the counter. Every shopper bought while engaging in a short conversation with the clerks. Watching them, I also wanted to have a conversation like local people. Yet it was impossible. I couldn't speak Chinese nor Taiwanese.

I wished if I could speak the local language always when I traveled. On the other side of the coin, it was uncommon to be assumed a combative attitude because I didn't have a talk.
