The picture and the text bellow was sent by our special envoy and "bargaining corespondent" in Guatemala, Patricia Rojas-Zambrano.
Please take this chance and share with us your bargaining experiences in cultures around the world.
Meet Micaela, weaver and tough negotiator. "Name your price my friend- she said when I seemed put off by her asking price, we have just begun, give me chance to sell you my work. After bargaining back and forth a few times and we both felt it was fair, she said " I am glad you gave me the chance to serve you". Whether you are in Chichicastenango, Guatemala or London, UK it requires Cultural Intelligence to navigate the trade world. How about to know you have found a friend?
