A new shop in town. "Butcher", it proclaims. "Halal", it offers. So, I go inside and find a paradise of spices, hanioc flour, ginger, pepper, brown sugar, yuccas (which I have never tried yet), yams, green plantain bananas, shining, lumpy courgettes, bags of couscous and bags of I haven't a clue and at the back, a meat counter.
A steady stream of people leaving this place with large green plastic bags so heavy they could hardly carry them...
Oh, and bags of blue corn. I asked the owner what to do with them but he said I should have asked the girl in the green sweater that just left because she is from South America.
It is boiling.
