Once a week this man comes by selling brooms (escoba) along with plastic laundry baskets and other assorted plastics.
He just giggled like a little kid when I asked him if I could take his picture. But he said yes and stood smiling while directing you to his wares. I bought two brooms one a push broom for the leaves on the patio and one regular broom for the inside of the house. Total $9.50 and I did not have to go to Bahia or Portoviejo to purchase them. That is a big deal for us.
