There are many women peddlers around the main plaza in San Miguel de Allende. They sell everything from dolls, necklaces, embroidery, shawls, wooden toys and so on.
They often have their children with them and maybe a baby on their backs.
This is gruelling work and I feel for them.
It is easy and polite to simply say no thank you if you are not interested.
They were having lunch in the shadow of the large church.
This is not a great photo as she was trying to be discreet. Her baby was crying on her back so she expertly brought him around, fed him and then he fell asleep and she put him on her back again. All while also trying to sell her wares.
This woman appeared elderly, had a cane and hardly a tooth in her head. I bought an embroidered square placemat that I probably paid too much for, but it didn't matter.
