Mainly a picture update for you today of a visit down to Bakau Market. There were plenty of ‘bumsters’ here which we had been warned about. Some bumsters are nicer than others. Some are keen to show you around and provide useful tour guide services. Others just want money and are not afraid to tell you that. George happily received a friendship bracelet. It was relatively easy to shake most of them off with a firm “no thank you”. Invoking the name of MRC is also helpful in this situation.
