It was chaos - we had never seen so many people there - thousands upon thousands of people, all drenched in seat and smelling a bit off after a hard days work, were literally tripping over themselves to get to the bargains (as you can see in this photo).
The noise was incredible as well - from every corner of the market came the shouts and chants - vendors yelling out their best price to anyone walking past.
Brad decided to record the sound on our camera, and we got really lucky with a bit of amusing dialogue. Listen to this audio file: Download good_price_for_you.WAV
At first you can plainly hear the cacophony of vendors hawking there goods, you will also hear a man and woman yelling "san shi kuai, san shi kuai" (30RMB, 30RMB). They were selling long sleeve t-shirts.
The guy suddenly sees Brad and offers him a `friend' price of 60RMB! With friends like that, who needs enemys!
The old habit of ripping off the laowai is a hard one shake, even when standing there with a sign on the pile t-shirts with a big "30" foreveryone to see!
