Fourteen-year-old vendor in Vientiane. I bought a Tiger Balm to get this photo from this tough bargainer. He said 10,000 (at 10,000 kip to the dollar), I said 5,000, he said 6,000, 6,000, 6,000, I said okay to 6,000 with photo. Later he approached me again and I tried to sell the Tiger Balm back to him for 10,000, and he said, "Oh, cheap! Good price!" and felt in his pockets and shrugged "No money."
