Night market

Night Market

Silks for sale in the Luang Prabang night market, Laos.

From my travel journal:

At night we go to the night market, which is fantastic! Mostly silks for sale, but also many other textiles as well as things like bottled snakes and scorpions and many kinds of crafts. The whole market is just two long rows with goods laid out on either side. All this is lit with beautiful lanterns or small lightbulbs. It's very colourfull. At the far end is the food section. Lots of things I wouldn't eat, but they're interesting to see: whole flatfish, fried, and fried bats. Later we pass a restaurant with grills at each table. The meats include ostrich, deer, crocodile, and water buffalo.
