Great Travel Moment
I always go to the local market to buy produce whenever I am overseas. It is one way to see the locals and mingle with them, no matter how brief. They also, display their produce very nicely! In Milan, Italy they have flea markets on different days in different parts of the city. They are colorful. I enjoy even just looking around. I, also, read the signs in the local language and learn a word or two. The Mandarins and Clementines here, were grown in Naples. The clementines were seedless. A word of caution: Do not touch produce with your bare hands in most of the European countries. It is forbidden! The sign on top of the clementines says "Produce-Do not touch". The vendor will pick them for you or if plastic gloves were available, you may use them. I got in trouble when I was young and went shopping at a fruit stand in Germany. I did not know the rules then. This picture reminds me of that time when my hands were slapped for touching the apples with my bare hands!
