Market Mornings #2

In Uripa, Apurimac I witnessed something that many had told me about. Instead of using money, they buy and sell by trading products. These ladies were trading fruits, one was giving the oranges & limes and the other brought fruit back from what grows in her area. This all took place using the Quechua language, one that I do not yet understand.
