My New Hat And Gloves

Ready For The Cold – Just Bought Handmade Gloves And A Hat From Some Ecuadorian Artisans In Colombia

While walking around Popayan today, I found a small artisan market. There was a nice Ecuadorian mother/daughter team selling various hand-made clothing items in their stall. Knowing that I’ll be visiting some cold places in the near future, I decided to patronize them. The fact that the hat features Ohio State colors was a bonus.. 🙂

The hat and gloves combined cost 10,000 Pesos/$5.50.  The ladies even told me where the best place is to exchange my Pesos for Dollars at the Colombia-Ecuador border. Bonus!

I don’t like the cold, but all I have to say is BRING IT ON!
