 Castillejos Market-eggs, drinks, fish. The lady on the left is waving a "feather" over the fish to keep them fresh.
Don't buy the fish unless their wiggling. Those on the right were wiggling. 
                                                            More fish.
 Fresh roasted peanuts
 Sari Sari or snack market
 Rice, eggs, etc.

 MEAT MARKET-get your meat early in the morning when it's fresh
 Buy fish that are wiggling. Do you see the feather?

Fish, Fish, and more Fish
Sari Sari (snacks). Notice the girl in the back on the left. She's wearing a school uniform. All school children wear a uniform
Trikes waiting to pick people up at the market. Public Transportation.
Going Bananas!!!  Philippine bananas are small but yummy. I found someone who will sell us 1/2 bunch.

Most towns have a market. Market Day is different for each town. It's crazy busy on market day. Saturday is Market Day in San Marcelino. The branch building is up the same street as the market. We tried to get through, but they blocked off the street and only let trikes up there. It took us an extra 1/2 hour to find the church building.

We went to 8 baptisms yesterday. Two of them were Melchizedek Priesthood age. We are always grateful for those candidates to come into the church. The Philippines really needs Melchizedek Priesthood holders. 

We're loving it here. It's been raining for 8 hours. The rice farmers are grateful for the rain because it hasn't been a very rainy this season. The power was out for over an hour. The temperature was about 81*.
