Mazatlan’s Market with Zeb and Eider Duck

I, Zeb the Duck, and my Alaska cousin, Eider Duck, went to the market in Mazatlan, Mexico.   This is not like going to the mall at home.   The market is exciting!   They sell so much stuff here.   This man is selling meat.

We have a kitchen in our condo, but the humans do not want to cook on vacation, so we did not buy anything from him.   Here is more meat.

This will be cut into smaller pieces

Moving away from the fresh meat, we admired these hats.

Colorful, but too big for ducks

Mom bought a small skull.   We don’t know why, but she liked it.   There are so many booths selling souvenirs of Mexico.

So many choices

Can we take it all home???

Look at all these shells.

Shell wind chimes and so much more

Shells for all occasions

Other booths sold clothing and leather.   This market, or Mercado, has everything.  The lunch counter looked inviting, but we did not eat here.

Mom loves lunch counters and food from street venders.

He is working for tips only.   Piñatas are at many Mexican parties.   This one is a typical shape.

Big and colorful

At parties, or fiestas, the piñata is filled with candy.  The young humans take turns trying to break the piñata and then everybody dives for the candy.   It looks like a lot of fun for humans.  These are special piñatas for Christmas.

Aren’t they fun?   This is a sample of what you might see walking around the Mercado in Mazatlan.
