We spent the afternoon wandering around a mercado in the city, stocking up on fresh fruit to counter all the greasy food consumed over the last few days. During the time there, a beggar approached us and hassled the hell out of us for quite some time. In the end, we agreed to buy the old lady a banana for 3 pesos so hopefully she enjoyed ...
