STORIES / Gallery 2: Tala General Store, 2010

All I remember from this place was that while I was taking the picture, someone showed up with the produce from their plot and traded it for batteries. I asked later if that was a common thing here, and the answer was that some of the people in the area were so poor that it was easier to barter with them than having them owe money.Jáchal, San Juan Province
