One of the great joys of my life is going around food markets and one of the best I have found is the indoor market in Barcelona, La Bogueria. My son who is also a foodie accompanied me and we spent hours looking at the many fish and vegetable stalls there.

We watched this woman for some time. She would choose something, the butcher would wrap it up and hand it to her, and she would change her mind. This happened about five times. I don’t know how he didn’t lose his patience.
