  29. 29. Okinawa, Japan A vendor at the Makishi public market in the town of Naha offers a sample of daikon to a potential customer. His other offerings include bitter melon, prunes, pickled baby cucumber, cabbage, and much more.
  30. 30. Sarajevo, Bosnia Ensada Dudo and her husband Rasim shop in one of the city's new gleaming stores. Although they continue to patronize the city's traditional butchers and outdoor green markets, the Dudos have come to rely more and more on the low prices and ample choices provided by big grocery stores.
  31. 31. Hargesia, Somalia Residents shop for beef, mutton and camel meat.
  32. 32. Breidjing Refugee Camp, Chad A refugee woman sifts through sand in order to pluck out any bits of grain which might have dropped to the ground during the previous day's ration disbursement.
  33. 33. Weitaiwu Village, China The Cui family carries goods home from the market on a sanlun che , a type of three-wheeled cart.
  34. 34. Cap Hope, Greenland Cousins Abraham and Julian Madsen drag a freshly killed seal toward their house. Seal meat, cooked with rice and onion, is a family favourite.
  35. 35. Breidjing Refugee Camp, Chad A woman and child carry drinking and cooking water from a distribution point back to their tent.
  36. 36. Todos Santos, Guatemala Festival days are occasions for lavish feasts, for which Guatemalan families raise turkeys and sheep.
  37. 37. Kunming, China Cooked in the celebrated style of the city of Guiyang (which is located 300 miles away), these egg noodles are served in a spicy broth and topped with chicken, beef, shiitake mushrooms or - most famously - pig intestines and blood.
  38. 38. Breidjing Refugee Camp, Chad Sudanese refugee D'jimia Souleymane prepares a pot of aiysh , a thick porridge which she and her family eat three times a day.
  39. 39. Dubai, United Arab Emirates A mother prepares lunch in a kitchen building separate from her family's home. She is covered from head to toe, as she would be in public, because she is entertaining guests from outside her family.
  40. 40. Beijing, China From left: skewered sea horses, cicadas and silkworm pupae are sold at a street market in Beijing.
  41. 41. Istanbul, Turkey The Cinar family gathers on the floor of their living room to share the morning meal: feta cheese, olives, leftover chicken, bread, rose jam and sweet, strong tea.
  42. 42. Riverview, Australia Three girls enjoy the drinks and free gifts that came with their McDonald's Happy Meals. Although all three have roots in the Aboriginal community, they have little interest in outback cuisine. Mackas (Aussie slang for McDonald's) is presently their culinary mecca.
