Public markets with their fruits, vegetables and unexpected things allow us to measure and meet societies and their people in their most natural essence. Enjoying the colors, smells and the wide gastronomy of a tourist destination is another way to know, travel and enjoy. Thank you very much for your kind, simple and nice comment. Sincerely Durán Angel Eduardo
