Jewelry for sale

This is a display of some of the jewelry for sale on the beach at the Barcelo Resort, which is on Langosta Beach about 50 yards or meters south of our condo. Local people make very colorful necklaces and bracelets and there are about three or four tables such as this to display the goods.

In the main part of Tamarindo, some people will walk along the beach to sell jewelry or pottery to tourists. Fortunately, the vendors are polite and are not aggressive, as some street vendors are in other parts of the world. A quick shake of the head or a wave off with a hand will cause them not to approach tourists who are not interested in buying things.

This week we are showing photos of our favorite villa at Lake Como, Italy, the Villa Balbianello, on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site. It is a delightful place.

Making jewelry is no small task altho the folks who depend on it for income are very quick and efficient with their time.

It's fun to look around at local artisan's work! I'd have to whisk my wife past that spot.....
