  view on the animal market

As most animal markets, this market also started very early (from 5.00 till 6.00).

I wanted to go to market early, and quickly I found two companions (Cecilia and Carmen) to join me to this animal market.

And for a good market, we want to get out of bed really early, so we had our wake-up call around 5.30, and we had asked a taxi around 6.00.
About ten minutes later we arrived at the animal market. It was already very busy.

We walked up a small hill to get a good overview. Unfortunately it was a bit too early to make pictures, there was not enough light, so we still had to wait for a half an hour before we could start making pictures.

Attached picture gives a good over view of the market.
