Our First Purchase…

A plastic bag full of orange juice for 8 pesos (about $0.60) from a man squeezing it fresh right in front of us from his streetcart; “Hum, delicious!” We all are passing around a pesky head cold, and I’m sure this is the proper elixir to return us to full health. Glancing up the narrow cobble- stone street, Kim sees a man on horseback talking to an elderly woman standing in her doorway, “I think he’s selling milk,” she whispers to me, upon observing the two metal cans hanging like saddlebags from either side of his horse. I snap a photo as he proceeds slowly down the street.
