Silvia's Tuesday morning market is a popular place for the local indigenous people to gather and catch up with family and friends. Due to their colourful attire it is also a popular place for tourists lugging big cameras to journey to take in the market and its vibrant atmosphere. When we visited, it was quite apparent that tourists are a common occurance here and their cameras are not welcome. Some people allowed us to take their photos, however, most politely declined.
