postcard: Saturday market

La Paz,BO – Saturday is the big ¨market¨ or shopping day for most Bolivians. The tall downtown buildings couldnt block out all of the strong Andean sun today. I was grateful for the break from several days of wind & cold. As usual, the cobblestone streets of Mercado Rodriguez were crowded and noisy. Amidst the constant buzz of shoppers bargaining, I wound my way to what has become one of my favorite vendors - a health food kiosk. Luck was on my side, and despite the late hour, I was able to snag the last bag of soy bread sweetened with honey and mandarins as big as grapefruits! Yum.
Love, J.
