299: Selling hats
In Brazil you will find street traders everywhere. They are called camelôs. Often they have exhibited their limited range on a simple stall, some of them keep it simple with a big canvas or cloth on the sidewalk, others have handcars or bicycles. The more wealthy can afford to offer their value in their Volkswagen van, or in their luggage compartment. The street trader in the picture made use of the windscreen and hood. On very sunny days, he will certainly attract many customers looking for some cooling for their heated, sunbathed heads.
