Anguo Herb Market

As a part of the Mayway shoot we visited the bustling Anguo Herb Market — this is like the stock exchange of herbs and items used in Chinese medicine! One can find all sorts of unexpected wares. I happened upon a woman selling fresh water pearls which have a medicinal purpose in Chinese medicine (turns out they can be ground up and integrated into the remedy). I purchased a half kilo of pearls for a mere $13 — I don’t intend on ingesting them!
