The fresh food section was crowded. Colanders and trays were placed in the aisles, and food for sale was lined up on top of them. The market was full of women, both sellers and buyers, and their high-pitched voices echoed through the aisles. In Bago, it seems that women are supposed to work at the market and buy foodstuffs. The men are probably somewhere else doing the heavy lifting.

As I looked at the people, I suddenly noticed something. Many of the women here were wearing brightly colored clothes. Many of them were dressed so brightly that I thought they might be dressed for a foreign destination. I got the impression that they were all dressed up to the nines, whether they were working at the market or coming to buy something. Under the strong sunlight, the bright colors look even better. And knowing this, local women may prefer bright colors on a regular basis.
