    Compare to the last field work-Loft 8, this junk market seems be a real business. There were a lot of businesses happing in this traditional second-hand market. The sound I can hear was the voice of bargaining between sellers and buyers. Moreover, it is not difficult to take a taxi when we were leaving out of there, but it is from the Loft 8. However, we past through a new bridge to get there which just launched a few days ago, this disordered and poor rural area might become a new urban area in the near future.
