Shopping Shopping Shopping! This week we have been at the Barra Resort and we have had some of the best beach shopping yet. So how a beach shop goes is you first need to have small bills tucked into your third pocket easily accessible. Next, you simply plop down right by the waters edge in the warm sun and wait about five to ten minutes. There you will have a small local Neimen Marcus surrounding you. With the local men who are now your personal shoppers and go to guys for a different sizes you have a massive selection of clothing. Once you have sat down, the fun begins. You start sifting through many bright patterned pants, shorts, and shirts that are made by the grandmothers of the men who are selling them.
So you have chosen the pair of pants that you want to buy and now comes the hard part: the bartering. The key to this is to start with a price that is lower than what you are going to spend. This way you can go up from there and still not spend more that you want. To get a really good price takes some time so we are all masters at planning our time accordingly. Pants usually start at 250 meticais,
