My wife and I visited a flea market (I forget where) in an immigrant section one day, and an "antiques market" (flea market, really) the next. We got our best shopping deals there. I brought back an old beer glass for $2.00. I bought a Cocoa Bean carrying case (I think that's what the vendor said it was) for about $15.00. My wife bought lots of cheap shoes as well. More than the shopping, the local flavor was interesting. We saw a parade of sorts among different ethnic groups (Brazilian, Ecuadorian, etc.) and ran into the Ambassador from the Congo, while there.
