It's market day in town today, which is always nice. Songgui (the town where I live) is decently big (relative to its surroundings) and gets a market day every day that ends in 3, 6, or 9 every month. Being relatively big is also the reason that the middle school is situated kids--some kids can be over 3 hours away.
Anyways, one of the main reasons that market day is awesome is that you can buy cheap fruit. Normally, to buy bananas you have to pay 3 kuai for a half kilo (1.1 lb), but on market day you can get bananas for 1.5. I probably could have gotten them for 1 kuai (about 1/6th of a dollar), but I didn't feel like bargaining.
Also, all the dentists come into town on market day. A dentist is a man with a very small table, and a few tools and sets of false teeth who will sit alongside the street and help you with any tooth-related problems you have. They're only in town on market day. It's very ghetto, but it makes a lot of sense. People need their teeth taken care of, and there's no way that they can pay for modern dentistry with a dentist who went through years and years of training.
