    Have Your Picture Taken on a Mexican Burro

    Karen on a Mexican Burro

    On at least half a dozen street corners in Nogales we saw entrepreneurs set up with burros or donkeys and colorful props and backdrops, soliciting tourists to have their picture taken.

    Unique Suggestions: Why not just do it? We were asked $5.00 to take this picture of Karen on a burro, but the man readily accepted $2.00 when I made the counter-offer. He helped Karen mount and eagerly outfitted her with a sombrero, a tequila bottle, and a colorful shawl. It was a fun thing to do, we made a happy memory, and our amigo made a couple of dollars - a good deal all the way around.

    When you shop do not let them pressure you for price. State your price and walk away if they do not accept. Someone will follow you from store to store and tell the next store what you will pay and if you are an easy mark.

    Unique Suggestions: Check price with several different vendors before you buy

    Fun Alternatives: The last one is usually the cheapest as he has been told by a snoop that you are bargaining so will cut his price.
