Market Friday!

Joy @joythewanderer6 months ago | 2 min read

Yo yo, it's market Friday again? Exciting, because I always take so many pictures in all kinds of markets! Here are some more photos taken in the markets from my West Africa trip!

Above is the chicken market. I don't know why I made such a face, wasn't I supposed to be happy to see chickens? Chicken is very, very important in West Africa. Be prepared to eat chicken every day if you plan to travel there!

Ice cream, to be more specific, frozen yogurt, because it's literally frozen yogurt.

Busy busy market street!

groundnut oil thanks @kenn24

So, tell me, how can I have hair like theirs?

I constantly heard people saying “Chinois, Chinois” when they saw me. (But shouldn't it be Chinoise? lol) I normally get pissed off when I heard "nihao", "ching chong" or things like this in Europe, but oddly enough I was totally fine with it in Africa, don't know why... Anyways, they wanted me to take a selfie together with them, so here it is! This happened a lot in places like Colombia, CI or Iran. Nice to visit those places where Chinese tourists are not everywhere yet!

Next time I think I need to start a Polaroid fundition project or something, so that I can give out photos directly to them! If they want of course... (Polaroid films are expensive!)

Do you dare to eat these? I didn't, coward! Wait, is it really for eating though?

Sandwiches you get in the market, they use newspaper to wrap food in Africa, which is not bad, hygienic enough? At least I survived! One of those moments I'm glad that I have a strong stomach, trained by eating street food for years in China ^^ Oh and you can read while enjoying your food.

Oh, yes! You are a real trooper, Joy! @joythewanderer It could possibly be a Ghanian market, but, Sam @mcsamm usually brings us to the Kumasi or another large market. But, I must say, I have never seen a West African market that wasn't colorful. Do you remember where you were?

Such a busy place, isn't it? Life doesn't stop there at the markets!

I like chicken! That is a good thing, yes? I love the face you are making as if the chickens are talking back to you. It is funny that they call out to you as you are Chinese, whenever I go places where it is Asian, they always want me to be included in their pictures. Even family photos! I was surprised the first time it happened, but, now, I love it! :)

That is a long road home, with the big city in the background. I wonder if they would do my hair? Yours would take all day it is soooo long! You didn't try those little wiggly insects? It's protein! Sprinkle them on your sandwich for a little bit of crunch! Come on! Be a sport!

Thank you so much for letting us tag along with you! It really was a lot of fun and the different market from what I am used to seeing was awesome!

Can I ask you to drop your link here so all the posts will be in the same spot! Much appreciated!

Upped and Steemed



Thanks for you nice words! They put insect in sandwiches 🤪

I know!! I promise you that they taste better than they look!


Sandwiches wrapped in news paper?? That doesn't sound quite right for food, does it ?

I would have been a coward too on the crunchy worms.

I enjoyed seeing your marked friday.


Hahah yea newspaper doesn’t seem so right but when I was there, I actually thought it looks so normal haha
