Wet Markets Around The World

Wet Markets Around The World (Nothing For Veggies & Vegans).

As you might already know, we’re in Guangzhou (China) at the moment. We’ve been here many times but there’s always something new to explore; especially on all the different markets … so I thought that I’d share a couple of our “wildest” photos with you.

Caution!!! We’re used to pretty much anything after all of our travels, so this is for those who are not: If you’re eating dinner, or lunch, I’d really recommend swallowing before you scroll down! Oh and in advance: a big sorry to all vegetarians out there … but hey, this is what you find at markets if you leave the touristy parts.

Anyway, let me know which one you think is the yuckiest. I’d really love to hear your thoughts on this :)

  1. Ladies,

    FABULOUS website. Very beautiful. I’m sorry I had’nt run cross it before. Just saw you on TTOT last night. This post cracked me up. It reminded me…I have this photo somewhere of me in Morocco holding a skinned goat head in my teeth by the tongue. Why did I do that? No clue.

    Best, Jim

  2. Well, lots of disgusting photos! Can’t decide which one is the most disgusting.

  3. Thanks you two for your comments!
    @Jim: Great to meet you today at TTOT. I’d REALLY like to see the photo of you with the goat ;)))
    @Ines: Yeah it took me a while to find all of these…I have so many more but I’ll keep those for another post lol :)
