First just an update from my blog yesterday: I ventured out this morning and while walking around town was comforted by the sight of calmness. There were no riots going on today (at least none that I saw). I did hear from some other Americans that they were told the parade for the new mayor was canceled and that he wasn't coming to Pana anymore. There were still a lot of military guys around, but not driving around pointing their guns at the streets like they were last night. Overall it was just like any other day here which I'm incredibly grateful for. I also got a phone call from my amazing roommate after she read my blog making sure I wasn't freaking out.
So... since it was safe to play around town today I did. First off I went to the market this morning with Janet and one of Salud y Paz's board members who is in town for the week. I realized that I had only taken a couple of photos on my IPod to share, so I thought I would be that tourist girl today and take pictures. The market is open everyday, but Sunday is the day when all the farmers bring their fresh produce into town. The market is beyond packed on Sundays, but it's worth it to see all the extra vendors and the fresh fruits, veggies, and flowers. There are lots of vendors outside then when you start walking inside there are several rooms to walk through.
