2013, Day 39 - Whiffy

One of the things that strikes you in all the markets in Asia that I have ever been to is the smell.  We're so used to keeping everything under plastic which keeps the fish from smelling fishy but it also prevents us from checking the freshness.  Although I have been vegetarian for over a decade I still cook for my dogs and sometimes you unwrap a piece of meat and it is fatty on the bottom, or it has oxidized and is a little tough.  The dogs don't care but if I were going to eat it I would be upset.  In the markets in Cambodia you can inspect the meat, see the nice color, and know that it is fresh.  I like that and while some people find the mingled aroma to be a little hard to take I am find the sights, sounds, and smells new and exciting.  I wonder if these little guys are going to be smoked and served in a green mango salad...
