Fresh Chicken

Many Filipinos are shy and reluctant to be photographed. Not this jeepney driver. He proudly posed with his soon-to-be dinner.

We have had some fish and some packaged ham lunchmeat, but usually we eat chicken. Maybe two to three times a week. We have yet to buy any meat from the market, prefering a few shops that have covered coolers to the in the open covered with flies variety. Chicken costs 130 pesos a kilo, a little over $3 for 2.2 pounds. The store owner doesn't understand why we would want to eat the breasts and if Thomas hadn't shared that in the States that is the favorite part (rather than heads and internals) we might have been able to get a better deal!
