A trip through another Amazonian market

We wandered throught another market in a riverside town. Food to eat or cook, a barber shop, several hardware stores (where in one the shopkeeper was preparing a cake to bake), a pharmacy - part of a "chain" called Inka Farms, some tortoises, clothing and shoe stores, dishes and cutlery.

Perhaps it was at this place that one of us purchased a tortoise (or maybe it was a turtle) took it on the boat, and later that day freed it alongside a river bank.
