Chun Jie Oranges

During Chinese New Year (Chun Jie) it is common tradition to take a box of
oranges as gift to the family one is visiting. Thus oranges are for sale all
over the city. Very near our school and apartment is a large wholesale fruit
market. People travel from all over the city in small three wheel trucks, bikes
and other vehicles to purchase fruit that they will then go and sell on the
streets. The kids and I got off the school bus near the fruit market and took
a walk over to see and take pictures.

Notice this semi truck below…in the center near the line of boxes colored
lime green, there is a Chinese man sitting among the boxes
