Thursday Open Market

open market

From Roger, who drove up with a truck full of goods on Wednesday to Ishinomaki: Most of the supplies are now distributed to neighborhoods where food and supplies are impossible to buy. Word is spread door to door and then people line up to get what they need most. Today we set 10 points to each person to spend any way they want. For example, 3 cucumbers was 1 point, 1 apple was 1 point, etc. People appreciate this orderly way of doing things.

Aidan (Roger’s son) came for the first time on this trip to help out. Everyone loved having him as their “shopkeeper.”
