Markets of Goa
The Wednesday Flea market in Anjuna, despite changes over the years, is still widely popular. There is beauty in chaos in this market, a riot of colours and goods and people of all kinds from all over the country and world. There are some Westerners and Easterners trading goods and services like tattoos, piercings, art, freshly baked cookies and the like. And all of this by the sand and sea.
