Swap Meet On The Rio

"One event that draws characters out of the woodwork is the Saturday-morning swap meet at Mario's Marina. Anyone with an odd fitting or broken radio migrates there around 9:30 to unload it. Once we settled in pretty Tortugal Marina in August, before we set off backpacking the country, Douglas and I cleaned out, washed, and inventoried every locker on Ithaka. Anything we hadn't used in a year and a half of cruising (excepting spares), we piled into bags and dinghied over to Mario's and offered it up to the highest bidders."
