Photographer's Note

I created today a theme to include my series of Mindelo hawkers: Cabo Verde - Rabidante. The rabidante are the street vendors or hawkers in Cape Verde, usually women, as you see here and in the other photos of this series.
As I wrote yesterday, owing to men's emigration and other less noble reasons, usually in Cape Verde only the women take care of the children. So, when they are not in school, these girls are with and help their mother selling the produce in the street.
This women's business is somewhat specific, at least this day: mostly herbs for teas and dry fruits (tamarind and two kinds of African nuts); there is also a few potatoes, apples and two bananas.
Please compare this hawker with the poor (poorer?) Fogueteiro Hawker photo from Portugal.
