I was standing at the edge of an open-air market. Many people were passing by me. A place like this is a good place to observe the locals. The flow of people never stops. I felt I could blend in with the crowd. In fact, few people pay attention to foreign tourists standing on the street. I sensed the liveliness of the town from the trashy market.
In the meantime, an old woman came into my sight. She was holding a rolled up piece of paper in her hand. Perhaps she had written down what she needed to buy at the market. At any rate, the old woman did not look at me, but crossed the street in front of me.
Beyond the old woman, I saw a display of bananas in front of a store. Bananas are a common fruit in Myanmar. It seems that the bananas commonly sold in Myanmar are a different kind from those sold in Japan. However, I did not know this until after I returned to Japan, so I did not buy bananas during my stay in Myanmar to check how they were different from Japanese bananas.
