Where's the MALL???
Shopping in Nsukka is nothing like shopping in Chicago, except that you still need to have money to buy what you want! In Nsukka the market is a large mass of small shops that share walls. The shops run next to each other both from north to south and east to west. The roofs of the shops are tarps or corrugated metal sheets. If it's a very hot day, like it was today, you might feel overheated and wish for a breeze of fresh air because the plastic tarp or hot metal seem to hold the heat and prevent the air from circulating. What might you find in the market place? Why anything from jewels to give to your friends when you get home, to nuts and peppers to share with friends who come to visit, to school supplies. I wonder what goody goodies the delegation found on their trip today? Do you think they found something to share with you?
