The city’s people may go to doctors or pharmacies when something is wrong with their bodies, but they are more likely to go to the markets where herb sellers listen to their stories about what ails them and prescribe for them teas from roots, leaves, and flowers, depending on what the specific ailment is.2 1831

It was standing room only, as people ordered, waited for, and consumed their “altos”, “grandes” and “ventis.” 4 3954
