“Get your fresh fruit, flowers… mop!”

Pomegranates! Papayas! Fresh cut roses! Mops, brooms! Is there anything more fun than wandering through small, neighborhood markets? Particularly ethnic markets… those with items for sale that aren’t on your weekly shopping list; from cultures or countries other than your own; where the packaging is in a language you don’t understand?!

Today’s Foto Fix is of a neighborhood Mexican market in San Juan Capistrano. I enjoyed seeing the fresh fruit displayed out front of the store, and the big plastic can filled with brooms and mops, and the little one full of fresh cut roses. All needs taken care of in one fell swoop! Fantástico! And, the tall stalks of sugar cane leaning there brought back some great memories. Summertime as kids, my brother and I would walk barefoot downhill to our small neighborhood market and buy foot-long pieces of sugar cane, then tear strips off to chew during the long walk back home… burning our feet on the pavement down and back, jumping into shady spots whenever we could, or onto the painted sections of the road because it was cooler than the asphalt. Would we wear shoes next time? Ha! Of course not! ~SueBee (photo by SueBee)

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
