culture shock

IMG_5590 I've seen many hanging buckets whenever I go to markets like Hounan Ichiba in Osaka.

When you buy something from the vendor, they fling the money into the bucket and put your item into a plastic bag, which is hanging right next to the bucket.

Don't get any funny ideas though, if you try to run off with their bucket, chances are that you'll snap back because that bucket is usually hanging by a bungee cord...cool yeah?!

Just the visuals of someone running off with the bucket and then getting "sproing" reaction....hilarious!

I've never seen anyone "sproing-ing" Rowena, but it would be something entertaining :)

So trustworthy indeed Jalna :)

Take care you two.
