The markets…and everything else. Feb 2012
The markets of SE Asia are a fairly good example of old school commerce. These places are jammed with everything ancient to newer more modern bits and pieces. It seems that there is very little that you cant find within the confining fabric and craft walls of these collectives. Im pretty sure there is some sort of order in this chaos, i mean everyone seemed to know exactly where they were going or what they were doing and there was no real issues with shop lifting. Travel in any part of asia for a westerner is always going to be an eye opener. The ancient culture there is something we have very little familiarity with and its indifferent to becoming familiar with our version, which is just fine with me. All the more interesting for the world travelers out there.
