Mexican Out Door Market

This is the Mexican Out Door Market up in the hills, where you could buy anything from clothes, to jewelry to prescription medications (without a prescription) They had knock off designer bags along with free shots of tequilla in every booth. The salesmen were very aggressive with you outside the booths in trying to get you to come in, you had to be very stern if not rude to get them to stop pulling on you and to get out of your way. It was very colorful there and the smells of the kitchens was enough to make you mouth water. One of the girls bought a poncho for $25 bucks and just 3 shops down they were trying to sell us another one for $160! Oh we had our game faces on and of course we won....I got him to come down to $20! lol talk about mark up! lol
