How it works:
- Opening: a group of African women shakes your hand and begins tying a string around your wrist, seemingly for free and as a sign of friendship.
- Set-up: however, a fee will be demanded once it is tied and it will be tied so tightly that it’s difficult to untie.
Places to beware:
- Gran Canaria: Playa de Maspalomas, Strandpromenade Meloneras
- Tenerife: Playa Fanabe
