The health department in the U.S. would probably stroke out at this selling of raw fish in an open air market.
Sorry, but this doesn’t look all that appetizing to me.
But our guide loves it. He has ben our guide on a couple of excursions. The fish is marinated in some concoction and is eaten as is, bones and all.
He loves them and eats them all the time. He couldn’t atop talking about how good they are. He tried to get some of us to eat one, but he had no takers.
I don’t know, but he looks a little green around the gills, if you ask me.
Cooked fish and other things were also sold there.
Not only food, but also beautiful flowers were also available.
Pomegranates are called granaat apples over there.
Cheese wheels were in abundance.
I’ll introduce you to our cast of characters. These are the people we went on the cruise with. They are all retired from Kraft Foods and take a cruise together like this every couple of years. Pictured above are Chuck and Chris from Virginia.
This is Jeff and Janet from Michigan.
Rick and Pam from Virginia
Larry and Sue from Texas
Ned and Kathy from Delaware. Ned did a fantastic job planning and organizing the entire cruise. Debbie and I would have never undertaken this trip without experience travelers like Ned and Kathy.
My bride Debbie and I are so thankful to be invited to go with them, even though we are not “Kraft people.” We look forward to seeing our new friends again.
At the end of most cruises, (River or Caribbean), there is a parade of the kitchen crew featuring baked Alaska for dessert.
Well, all good things must come to an end. We’ll spend the night on the ship, the River Splendor, and take a motor coach to the airport in the morning. If you plan to go on a river cruise, look into Vantage Cruise Lines. They are fantastic!
Thank you for travelling with us, and I’ll keep the blog going with posts from other outings, so stay tuned.
