Rainbow Bright, live poultry and me!
Thursday is one of the two big market days here in Tactic, the other is Sunday. So today I went out in search of sweet potatoes and pots for my plants. When I got there I ended up behind a lady with a panicking chicken in a basket on her head, which succeeded in jumping out of the basket nearly landing on me! Next I noticed one of the clothing vendors had a sweater for sale with Rainbow Bright on it! If you're not in your mid-twenties you may not know who that is, but man for me what a blast from the past to see the little girl in her colorful outfit! We had a record and book about her when we were little, the kind that a bell rings when it's time to turn the page. So after that I bought my plant pots, some sweet potatoes, an itty bitty pineapple I couldn't resist because it was so cute (and only costed 1 quetzal - about 16 cents!) It was a successful shopping trip:)
