WATERMELON - Somalia
IN THE MARKETS: WATERMELON

What to buy:
Watermelon is sold in every market and is great for keeping your fluid levels up. Do not worry about dust and flies. Just indicate to the seller that you want it sliced. These guys all have razor sharp knives and will cut you a clean piece from the inside. Just 500 Shillings (1 note). Bargain.

SOMETHING FOR THE LADIES ! - Somalia
In all Markets: SOMETHING FOR THE LADIES !

What to buy: Accoss the markets you will see young ladies carrying trays with perfumes and small plastic containers. Inside the containers are rock like pieces of incense. For LADIES ONLY! These small crystalline chunks are flammable. You need to buy a cheap ceramic holder in the market in which you burn the incense when a lady is bathing. Always a good gift to take home.
