Mingala Market

the mingala market in nyaungshwe

Tuesday, February 24: After leaving the festival, I ride my bicycle several blocks to the Mingala Market.  The market is packed with locals every morning, when farmers and fishermen from the lake bring in fresh fish and produce from the floating gardens.

Today, Nyaungshwe happens to be hosting the five-day rotating market, so the Mingala market is swollen to double its normal size.

I love taking pictures at Asian markets, and this one is as colorful as they get.  I enjoy walking around watching the people and thinking it would be fun to live here and come here daily to buy fresh produce and fish. I could be so healthy!

After leaving the market, I bicycle around the town, where eventually I end up along the canal.  A big crowd is here washing a giant Buddha.  It is something to behold!
