Market Shopping in Vietnam

Anne Parker updates us from Vietnam. I’d like to share with you where I do my food shopping. The market is divided up into sections. Each area sells pretty much the same thing: all the veggies are together, the fish is right next to the river, and the meats are just up a few steps.There…
