... is perched in the door of her shop, asking me to come in. I approach, she starts her broken english sphiel." Why you only buy one shop? I need money. I poor. I work. You need to buy from me!" I am kind, most of her stuff is typical of what I have seen before. I tell her I don't really see anything I need. She repeats her sphiel. Then adds in clear spanish, "Tu eres tacaņo!"

... is nearly as interesting as in Vietnam with the local 'chicken' buses carrying all manner of people and goods strapped to the roof careering along the roads. They plus the huge articulated lorries winding their way along and with no road etiquette re which side to pass a vehicle made for an interesting ride. I loved seeing local life as we passed by- young children walking alongside what would be the equivalent of our A1 ; rows of shacks or rather shops ...
