Snakeskin Fruit and Sator Beans

If possible, I try to visit local markets when I visit new places. They are a beehive of activity and awaken the senses. Such wonderful combinations of color and textures. 
The photo above has some great complementary colors - the reds of the rambutan, other (I'm not sure what they are) produce, and the man's shirt are offset by the bright green sator beans. These "stink beans" make a great combination with durian, which was also sold at the market.

At the market and along the roadside, I saw lots of Salak being sold. Also known as snakeskin fruit, I can definitely see where it gets its nickname!
