Day of Shopping - Central Market

July 29, 2011

Today was all about shopping and negotiating. And did we ever negotiate, something that I learned well from my current employer was how to negotiate and and let the other party talk themselves down in price. This tactic worked well for all of us. Now remember that the exchange rate is $1 USD to $3.20 Ringget, it was hard not to feel like we were taking advantage of a situation, however, I likened it to going to the dollar store and buying dollar trinkets, it was honestly the only way I could consciously pay what we paid for items. Needless to say Alex bought a watch, Thad bought a RC car (this one we really had to negotiate), the bigger problem will be how we are going to get it home, and I purchased fun stuff to share back home.

We started at the central market....

Lari and Alex enjoyed a pedicure of the fish kind before we started our day of walking. I could not bring myself to enjoy this treat....
