A Travellerspoint blog

Does no mean later?

One thing that is prominent here in this beach town are street peddlers. The moment you sit down, several of them will approach and asked "miss, you need mani/pedi, massage, waxing, sunglasses etc." The most heart-wrenching ones, are the young children around 4-7 years of age who are selling little hand made bracelets and hair bands. If you say no, they respond with okay then later. I'm a sucker for these types of things and I just end up buying whatever is sold to me. I wish I had more guts and will power but then I think what if that was me and that was my only source of income to feed myself and my family. It's hard to say no hence 1 sarong, 2 sunglasses, 4 bracelets and 2 hair bands later, I am officially banning myself from the beach. Thank goodness we head back to Phnom Penh tomorrow. I don't know how much more my wallet can handle.
