Last week a few of us stopped by a local fabric store to peruse the colorful pieces unique to this continent. I feared I wouldn’t be able to document this outing because when we first arrived the lady at the register gave a definitive “no” when asked in a most rudimentary manner (i.e. point to phone, ask “photo?” in tourist English) if pictures could be taken. But after we had all spent way too much buying our fair share of souvenirs, the lady graciously allowed us to snap away. That’s commerce, my friends.
