We have a variety of places to purchase what we need.  We have big modern stores which are similar to those back home.  There are various craft markets for buying “souvenirs.”  There are little shops along the side of the road—or on the road.  And then there is one of the largest markets in East Africa, Owino Market.  Here one can buy anything you desire—from food, to clothing, to household items, to cloth, to televisions, to traditional medicine, etc., etc.  It is also easy to get lost as the aisles twist and turn.  Sally Jo accompanied our house helper one time and they even got lost!
