unfinished blogs – no. 4 – Wet markets in Penang

I’ve been writing this blog for three years this month, and have accumulated many partially written blogs that remain unpublished. I may as well just publish them as is, and if I ever feel inspired to finish any, do so later.

Another topic I must tackle, but haven’t over the past three years.  Wet markets are often a bit wet underfoot, are smelly in parts, are found in many neighbourhoods, and often are hard to park near.  Most are open in the morning, some in the afternoon and / or evening.  You can get fruit, vegetables, fish, some meat, dry goods etc., often at a better price than in supermarkets. Often, but not always. They are also political, and the government improves the facilities sometimes, and has to deal carefully with them, as they are important to many people. If you’ve never been to one, go and see for yourself.
