You read about Jennifer Harris’ dream vacation in the August 2009 Enlightened Traveler column; now check out Jennifer’s own photos and diary of her trip.
It was unlike any grocery experience I’ve ever had. The fish were still moving. Snails were poking out of their shells and octopuses the size of my hand lay sprawled over ice. Fishermen yelled for us to see their catches, as competition was fierce. Wish I could shop like this every day! I would buy fresh ingredients as I need them, and never be tempted to resort to convenience foods. I think everyone would be healthier and happier if we adopted this lifestyle.
