::Buy me..: by specialsally ::Buy me..: by specialsally
"Buy me" is one of a series of "Buy me" pictures.
It is kinda sad and funny at the same time. I didnt know who to feel at that time...

Let me tell you a little story: we were on the cruise when suddenly a blue boat aproach the cruise and tried to hold on to it by a rope... while one was doing that, another one was rowing, and the other one was calling and screaming to the people on the cruise to pay him some attention.... again, they were trying to sell us some stuff... the funny thing was how they approach the cruise....
Well, someone in the staff of the cruice notice the boat nex to the cruise and cut the rope... but then another boat appear... and another... and anoother and anooooottthheeerrrr.... there were like 15 boats next to the cruise screaming and throwing their producs in plastic bags for us to see and buy....

If we wanted something, we throw them the money through the same plastic bag and when he's got it, he will throw the plastic bag with the product inside...

you know what's funny?.... they are so into sell to turist that they know a lot of language, jokes and names...

Nile River, Egypt.

"Comprame" es una foto de una serie llamada "Comprame"
Era triste y gracioso al mismo tiempo, pero no supe que sentir en ese momento que ocurrió

Dejenme contarles una pequeña historia: Estabamos en el crucero cuando derepente un bote azul se acercó al crucero y se intentó amarrar a éste con una cuerda... mientras uno hacia eso, otro remaba y otro gritaba y llamaba la atencion de la gente para que lo miraran... nuevamente intentaban vendernos algo... lo gracioso fue cómo llegaron al barco...

Bueno, alguien del personal del crusero se dio cuenta de que habia un bote amarrado a ellos y fue rapidamente a cortar la cuerda... en eso otro bote apareció... y otro... y despues otro, y otrrrooo y oootrrooo ... se juntaron alrededor de 15 botes al lado del crucero con egipcios gritandonos y lanzandonos cosas en bolsas de plástico para que veamos y compramos...

Si alguien queria algo, lanzaba el producto y el dinero de nuevo en la bolsa hacia el vendedor, el vendedor retiraba el dinero y lanzaba la bolsa de plástico de nuevo. Todas las cosas iban en la bolsa para que no se mojaran con el Nilo

Saben que es lo más gracioso? Estas personas estan tan metidas en las ventas a los turistas y extranjeros que saben una cantidad impresionante de idiomas, bromas, chistes, nombres

Rio Nilo, Egipto

Que HISTORIA TAN SORPRENDENTE, vaya...de verdad que no pense que cosas asi sucedieran, afortunado el lente de tu camara en robarle a la realidad momentos con historias tan maginificas. De verdad que ratifico mis felicitaciones en la imagen anterior y con gusto y con sinceridad acierto nuevamente en lo agradable de la galeria y de tus imagenes. Y en realidad me sorprende. EXITOS NUEVAMENTE. Y espero siempre haya una razon profunda en las imagenes que revelan el comportamiento del hombre. mucho gusto.
