Market stalls at La Salada Market

"After preparing the 60 lumps of dough I took everything—my grill, my tray, pots-and-pans and all the metal parts [fierrerío: metal material to build the market-stall]—and put it in my rastrojero [old Argentine truck] and took them to the street that you see there. There were not even dogs that early in the morning! I went up to the sidewalk with the truck, close to the Riachuelo, and I stood there. And then I started to set up the metal structure, I also put a piece of plastic over the structure, closed it well. So I had my space."
