The first time that I went to the Fish Market as a school girl was to get a crab for my drawing exam. I’d never seen one before, dead or alive, just as pictures in books. It gave me a shock to see it in real life and it was so smelly. I couldn’t afford it anyway so I had to choose something else to draw. I can’t remember what it was but obviously much more boring that a crab.
