A lot of local people use sea water medicinally. For those that have never been to the coast before wading into the surf is a little intimidating. The man photographed here makes a precarious living selling sea water. He rinses the plastic containers under fresh water showers then heads into the sea. He fills the containers making sure to have a little of the sand at the bottom of the container, a sort of mark of authenticity I suppose.
