Pile Of Dried Fishes

Pile of dried fishes

Every bag was filled with dried fishes

Shot in the city of Bago, Myanmar.

The fishery product was common in Myanmar. I saw many fishes sold in every market where I visited during traveling. This country is one of the major countries which has a large seafood consumption. So fishes were sold in spots in the market built on the riverbank of the Bago river. Not only fresh fishes but also fish products were sold.

What I found next to the traditional fermented food, I found dried fishes. Many bags were placed in the storefront and every bag was filled with the dried fishes. I didn't know what kind of fishes they were. Anyway, they were as dry as a bone. Unlike the traditional fermented food called Ngapi, this kind of dried food is also common in Japan. And they looked delicious. I paused to realize the sense of deliciousness was depended on the circumstances of upbringing.
