Traveling Salesmen

Traveling Salesmen by Luna McCarthy

I personally, LOVE these guys! In a city where there are lots of markets and stalls and vendors, sometimes you just need something delivered to your door. It’s like the Shopping Channel without having to pay for shipping! These door-to-door salesmen (and sometimes women) work so hard, selling everything from plastic containers to shoe racks to brooms to garbage bags. I even bought warm, fresh baked bread from door to door salespeople last week; super yummy. It’s funny, in a country where many of us foreigners who come here, choose to live a life of simplicity…convenience still exists, it just might have a different face than one would expect!

    I love the door to door sales people… When I am in Guate I’ve had people knock on the door selling dobladas, chuchitos, tamales, and all sorts of food.  It’s great because I don’t even have to go out to get something to eat 🙂  And of course they do have people that sell other things too, I purchased a few nice tablecloths one evening from a lady who stopped by.
