but this is actually a rutted dirt road running behind a couple of hundred yards of storefront, and just a lot of people here selling everything, there's a fire cooking right in front of me. There's a woman, she's got some water going, potatoes for sale, a lot of onions, oil, second hand clothes,

38:11 ¿ 39:49 [pickup] but this is actually an African market. There's a couple hundred yards of storefront and this rutted dirt road running down between it, and people all along either side. And lots of yellow taxis going by, people pushing carts full of all kinds of goods, benches stacked. The market's closing up now, wrapping up in burlap piles of second hand clothes, putting away piles of potatoes, onions, garlic, dried chili's¿.. 39:37 It's just quarter after six in the evening, but the sun is gone, there are a few street lights on. When it gets dark here things stop. The market's closing. End of market at 41:15

42:03 - Ambi at hotel ¿ rainstorm to 1:11:30 End [ng]
