This is a picture of the cheese which is on a stick. They grill it in their little coal ovens that they carry.....with toppings of garlic sauce, pepper, oregano....yummy!
There are many other delicacies.....corn on the cob, shrimp on a stick, pop and other drinks, snacks....
There are the other sellers....jewelry, bathing suits, hats, purses, pareos....
and then there is this...sorry that I don't have a picture, but I will try to explain it as well as I can. It is not the best place to carry your camera, BUT boy did I need it!
So, my husband is sitting with his back to the water, and I am to his right, with my front to the water to watch the kids. This lady came and sat practically with her back to my husband's chair. I am trying to signal my husband (with my ever so expressive eyes) and let him know that something with her is not right.
Then she moves back again so that her back is just centimeters away from the back of his chair!
Luckily she didn't understand English, so he asked me, since I was making huge "worry eyes" to him, does she have anything in her hands to hurt us? I said no and then he moved the stick from the queijo coalho more towards me.
Now, if that is not enough....
she moves slightly to the side of his chair! She is now almost touching him and I am just freaking out! I said to him....tell her to move!
Luckily she stands up and walks away. Now, there were quite a few people looking at her then. It was very obvious that she was not "with" us.
My husband, being the ever-so-smart man, said he did not want to say anything to her nor even look at her because it may have been what she was looking for...to cause a distraction or to call attention to him so that then she could do something!
Whew....a very strange encounter, but at least nothing happened and we can both giggle about it now!
