Street-side Shopping

As with many less developed countries, vendors can often be found on street corners and stoplights, hawking various goods. On one trip around town, you could reasonably purchase windshield wipers, a cell-phone case, a radio, a toy, some as-seen-on-tv item and a seat cover. Plus various snacks like homemade chips, candied peanuts or fava beans.

But the very best thing is produce.
