We stopped by an open-air meat market in Tagaytay to buy some beef and pork. For a Filipino born in the US, it was quite difficult to take in the sights, sounds, and smell of this experience. Flies cover the meat. Vendors and beggars swarmed us. And there were cuts of meat that I have never seen before. Let's just say that it took several days for me to regain an appetite for meat.
