Haggling For Artwork In Salvador

I like to haggle, especially in places where that is the norm. On the last day Alex, BG and I went to Pelourinho to find this art I like by Adriano Luiz. I’d seen it in the first couple of days in Pelourinho, and then again on Christmas Day Shay showed us one of the ones she had bought from the batch. So it is Sunday and we are walking around in the morning. Most of the vendors are not even out selling their wares. This doesn’t look good, and this is the last day, so if the guy selling the art isn’t about I don’t get to buy it at all.

Haggling For A Taxi In Senegambia

Gambian Cab

We hailed a cab from outside the hotel which took us directly to the tourist strip. There were not many people out as most of them were probably at the concert. We started off drinking at a Pizzeria. The man serving the drinks seemed to take a liking to me and served me a triple shot instead of a single. (RESULT!) He said he was 28. I thought he was lying because he looked about 40. Deborah said that he must have just had a hard life. Anyhow it made me chuckle. When he served the next drink as a single instead of adding a little extra I was time to move on.
