Lunar New Year 4

Much of the world may be turning away from meat for health and environmental reasons, but for many developing countries eating meat is a sign of success, an indicator that the family is no longer too poor. And that is especially true at the Lunar New Year when roast pig is an almost essential item.

The proper day to buy the roast pig is the morning of the reunion dinner so all the farmers bring their offerings to town early in the day. There are big pigs and little pigs, a size to fit each family.
This man considers the roast pigs on offer on the street. If a whole pig is too much, there are slabs of roast pork in the cart on the right.
If roast pig doesn’t seem right this year, roast ducks and geese are available at this shop.
This woman’s streetside shop offers more roast ducks and some small pigs.
