|Always a fun event!|
More than 80 countries participate in the annual market, which is the largest in the world. Many artists come from developing third-world countries where the average income is less than $3 a day. It makes me happy when I give items I purchased at the market to friends and family because I know I'm supporting artists whose work is the voice of their culture's history and an expression of their community identity.
Today I'm creating a long walk to and from the market, as well as walking around for several hours. All this walking is good since I'm planning to cook myself a steak tonight and drink some bubbly. Hey, it's Saturday!
