Orlando Ayme, 35, (wearing a red poncho), buys a big sack of rice from a  vendor in a truck. He sold two of his sheep at this weekly market in the indigenous community of Simiatug for $35 US in order to buy potatoes, grain and vegetables for his family. His wife Ermalinda and youngest son watch. He bought "broken" rice because it is cheaper than the whole grain rice. (Supporting image from the project Hungry Planet: What the World Eats.)
