There was a local market on the riverside of the Bago river. Although I didn't intend to buy anything, I entered the market. It was a nice place to see local people and feel the local atmosphere.
Many small shops did business in the dim market. The articles for sale sold here were no different from what was sold in the market in Yangon. Some stores sold perishable goods and some stores sold everyday things.
Walking around, I found a mysterious foodstuff. Many plastic buckets were placed in the storefront. And every bucket was filled with the sticky mess. This was a traditional fermented food in Myanmar called Ngapi. The fishes placed in the bucket and they were fermented in the bucket. It was very popular in this country. Perhaps, I saw it also in Yangon. Yet I didn't care about it. Anyway, it was unappetizing because I was not used to eating.
