Description: In West Africa , certain villages have markets that " assemble " at regular intervals , such as weekly or every three days . People from villages around the region converge on the town of Djibo in northern Burkina Faso every Wednesday to buy and sell food , livestock , and other goods and services . Here , a woman arrives in Djibo on foot , carrying fresh milk for sale in a calabash . She pauses to bring the calabash to the ground to show a potential buyer .
