The Ohio State Hat Featuring Brutus Buckeye

Finding A Completely Unexpected Piece Of Home In Huaraz, Peru

Yesterday, my first day in Huaraz, I was walking down the street and noticed a vendor selling hats. I immediately recognized some college teams among the hats, which surprised me.

What surprised me the most was finding a hat with Brutus Buckeye, my alma mater Ohio State’s mascot! Having just lost a close Final Four game the night before, which I didn’t really care about to be honest, it was just a nice thing to find when it was the last thing I’d expect.

I felt a bit guilty for taking the pictures and going through the motions with the lady selling the hats since I knew I wouldn’t pay $10 for the Ohio State hat. So I looked at other things she had for sale and I bought a $3 winter hat with the Peru logo. I’ll gift it to someone when I get home. And I didn’t feel guilty anymore 🙂

The hat is really nice, actually. At first I thought it was for kids, but it stretches like crazy and is really comfortable.

Anyway, very cool start to my time in Huaraz! And Go Bucks!
