    Were in may 2016 g. Unfortunately, today Friday, while Indian market in Pujilí works on Wednesday. I don't know, how does this market, and I think that in these times, as usual "cherkizon", so we are not disappointed because of his absence. But happy colorful vegetable-fruit abundance trade rows. Here you can buy 5 pieces cherimoj for 3 dollars and 5 pieces of passion-fruit of Andean for 1 dollar. We came to agreement on 6 for the same price, and strictly intercepted attempts to sell us small and plain fruits. We were polite, Cipro, but hard! Then I would be sorry, that is not bought and cherimojju, but did not make sense to return here in the evening, as the market closed 5. The more we met nowhere this fruit, so you always have to respond positively to their craving. Fish ranks were presented to the shrimp, red perch, queenfish and other unfamiliar to us (residents almost maritime city!) fish. The biggest impression of any giant white fish, which is already razdelali, and we only saw her fleshy parts. And it's all 100% svezhak and "a la naturelle», without any vyrashhivanij on farms. Alejandro, chuckling, shows us the local beauties-girls in short skirts and lush in shoes with heels, and all of them are male (from our perspective) sportcoat.
