KANDAL MARKET  Hold on to your hats – and noses. This market is clearly outside the usual tourist path; strong, meaty smells, hectic circulation and animated bargaining rule the place, amid the humid, oppressing heat.  It’s also where we got our biggest cultural shock. To our over-sanitized Western eyes (and noses and skins), everything seems a thousand times more powerful; the noise, the heat, the smells, the colours… It’s not a breath of life, it’s a mouth-to-mouth from existence.
