|Roadside Clothing Vendors|
Saturday on the drive north from Peace Park we came to a group of roadside shops just south of Itoman. It seemed like a good place to take a break. There were a group of mama-sans selling tourist clothing, flowery shirts and things like that. I tried to glance casually at one as a possible gift for a grandson, but as my eyes drifted shirt-ward, mama-san grabbed it from the line and held it in front of my face. "Discount!" She yelled proudly. After being scared by her unbridled capitalism, I fled onto a side street where I enjoyed an afternoon ice cream cone.
