“If you feel the need for that stuff you left behind in the US, this is the store. There are less expensive alternatives in Pinula but they don't have the selection that this place has.”

Locality
“An interesting town to visit, a lot of the Pocomam Indian culture still alive. Look for traditional "Cantaros" in the market or store located in the town hall. A very bad dirt road to get there is part of the fun.”
