Bird & Insect Market

The bird and insect market in Shanghai sells many other things, like fish and kittens. Puppies and kittens and bunnies are generally displayed in big glass aquaria like the one here. Cielo wasn't sure what to make of it.

Some of the many fish for sale. In China goldfish are taken seriously. They are really quite decorative.

And here are some of the birds that give the market half of its name. You don't really get the sense from the picture of how this enclosed market is so packed full of birds and bugs. You have to hear it for the full impact.

And: crickets.
