A medium fish....

~ KAITO : PORT CITY

The ship docked at Kiato. David and I decided to go to the town of Corinthia and visit the ancient site. First we had a cup of coffee then set out looking for the public bus that would take us the right direction. A funny thing happened when we went to coffee. A little girl came over begging for money. I don't usually give to them as I wonder if their parents know they are doing it and I understand some really don't want or encourage it.... but I gave her a quarter...... She was quite unhappy about the foreign money and kept telling me she wanted something else..... then a second little girl came over with her and asked for one. I gave her one too.

A surprised fish
I told her it was a quarter and explained the buffalo on the back. A man came over and asked what was going on.... We explained that we had given her a quarter and was telling her about the buffalo on the back. He leaned over and explained it to her and she skipped off happy.... She showed it to a teen age boy later and he took it. But her attitude was more like she fetched it for him... OK ... another reason not to give money. Lesson learned... But it was a little funny.

We saw a bit of the town as we walked... we asked a travel agent if there were any ancient sites near town and he said no.... He gave us directions to the bus station.... We stopped at a fish market and the lady there, after seeing I was photographing, picked up fish after fish for me to photograph... it was really sweet of her... They really had quite a few unusual fish...(The pictures are great...).
