Deep – fried spiders market

Spiderville: this is how Skoun was named because of its market selling deep-fried tarantulas. They’re like any other crunchy snack served in small bags. People here like to eat them for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Those who’ve eaten the spiders say that their taste is similar to that of crab, but it’s stronger and slightly bitter as you swallow. But apart from that, they’re not bad. There are deep-fried crickets and grasshoppers too, both savory and with no aftertaste.

We’re surrounded by little girls trying to sell us anything, with tarantulas on their bodies to draw people’s attention. Some people hold them as if they were stuffed animals, and then try to put them on you.

There’s lots of fruit on sale, among which the notorious Durian, whose cultivation and retail stay circumscribed because of its strong and penetrating smell. Even when it’s closed. The smell reminds us of rotting materials, feces, wastewater, and sweat. Hotels banned it, but the durian is still the “king of fruitsin all restaurants”.
