In the Market (Sokoni)

Today was my first day in the Market helping Mama Leah and Mama Cecilia sell yogurt.  This market was about a 15-20min Dalla Dalla ride (my favourite) and was behind Mwanza's Coca-Cola bottling plant.  It was pretty much an open field with a line of makeshift stalls.  The catch, which I found pretty ironic for a place to sell yogurt, was that the market was adjacent to where hundreds of men were selling hundreds of cows.

It seemed to work, because in about 4 hours, they sold out of about 20 litres of yogurt or maziwa (milk) as they were calling it.

And this was all after I was practicing for the Tanzania's strongest man by walking two 20kg buckets of water.  Three times.  Uphill.

These women work hard everyday.  Hands down.
