Night Market Photos

Here are some pics of a night market that I went to ... Towards the end of the trip, we went to a way better night market (forgot my camera that day), one that was much larger, had tons of clothes and shoes and things like snake alley and this tattoo road. Snake alley is not normal ... and is mainly for shock value. A lot of tourists will go to touch massive snakes and take snake bile, blood, or poison shots... Of course, I did not partake... a little too crazy for me.

Inside a grabber machine... a bunch of stuffed pika toys.
More "grabber machines"
A bunch of random cute stuff on sale. There were a lot of cute pigs for some reason there. In Taiwan, the males are not ashamed to carry adorable items also.
A bunch of tiny turtles...
A bunch of real tiny turtles... not really sure what these are used for... selling as pets... or what?
These are the CUTEST!!! Unfortunately, I'm never good at these games... so wasn't going to shell out 6 bucks to play this... Actually, wait... I've actually never played a "grabber machine," since I have such a strong aversion to gambling especially when I feel like I'm bound to lose... Of course, I don't care if others gamble...
Kid sized games... so cute.
People getting their ears cleaned by using the candle vacuum process... I don't know how sanitary this is...
Fresh shrimp to be made into shrimp skewers... I could never eat something that I've seen alive at one point... Don't get me wrong, I'm a meat eater... I'm just a cowardly meat eater...
