Happy New Year! This month we are looking at photos of fairs and markets around the world. Today’s photo is one that I snapped at Pasifika, a Polynesian festival here in Auckland, New Zealand which is like giant market. You can buy Polynesian goods from the various island nations and wonderful food such as keke pua’a (steamed pork buns) and raw fish which is mixed with coconut milk.
