buying and selling in Huatla

The first picture is of a copper coffee cascara (outer skin of the coffee bean fruit), I include it because you can still find copper machine parts here, because it shows that the growing of coffee on small farms is an important part of the economy here, and lastly, because my brother at Dark Hollow Micro Roasters, might be interested.

This is how you can buy chickens, select the one you want and the seller pokes an airhole, puts in some cracked corn and places the chick in a plastic bag, might sound cruel, but remember this chick gets to live out his days running around outside, instead of living on a factory farm.
and lastly, saddles and sombreros are basic items sold here.
