In some destinations, you may feel like a big, fat walking wallet besieged by anyone who’s selling something. Wherever I go, I learn how to say “No, thank you” in the local language and I say it ﬁrmly. I also wear sunglasses so that I can look at merchandise without vendors seeing me as a potential customer. For those just looking for a money handout, I occasionally give a little something—a pen, pack of crayons or a ball that I buy beforehand at a dollar store.
