You might think the air conditioning was running full blast with so much chirping, twittering, and buzzing going on. Instead, a veritable horde of crickets has staged this symphony of insects. Cricket fighting is China’s secret national sport. Buyers and sellers on the insect market transact their cricket business with an astounding amount of patience and expertise, examining these scuttling warriors in close detail. Birds are also available for purchase, and you can see them on weekends sitting in their cages suspended from trees in a nearby park.
