I'm always trying to sneak photos of beach vendors, and the women who sell the Guatemalan handicrafts on Playa Norte are my favorite subjects.
While visiting friends at their beach location at Maria del Mar yesterday, I finally decided to bite the bullet. I dread haggling over price, but that seemed the best way to buy a purse I'd been wanting and get a few decent photos!
As my friend and I were looking at their wares, the older woman joked to her younger counterpart that we were muy barato. Si, I understand a little bit of Espanol!
We both ended up with purses, but our heads were spinning from the cambio process. Ha!
I was trying to be muy barato, but I think she got me!
They had some cute beaded bracelets that I'm now regretting I didn't buy. Only 19 more shopping days till Christmas and I haven't even started!
