Guizhong Market - Granny Wei

Guizhong Market is East Liuzhou's biggest outdoor marketplace. In the summer, most vendors stay open well past dark.


This old gal stills works in the family business selling melons and other assorted fruit. She is 82. Still spry and sharp minded, she happily agreed to being photographed. I suspect she was covering her mouth because she has no teeth. You can still see her smiling eyes.


There's another shot of Ms. Wei at work on my China blog...
