|My new home|
|The mighty camper, camped on my doorstep|
First day I got here, I found out that Ingrid and Joerg were here, remember the Germans traveling the world in four years in the awesome vehicle? I meet up with them, did some shopping of course. We found them 2 cortes, took them to one of my sewing guys and had 2 light weight blankets made for their camper. We all had dinner that night with a group of other friends of mine. Next morning, they were gone. Follow these amazing people on their trip at http://www.arminius-on-tour.com

With shopping bags in hand, you start down the main street. Vendors are halking their wares in your face, walk straight, pretend they are not there. Even better, pretend you are not there. Head in any direction and note wonderful things to buy. Then the fun begins, the bargaining, an expected must. This is my first day back, so touching base with my regular vendors, saying hello to all. I buy a small amount, can't resisit. My main goal is to find some new things, I find 2 new handbags I like and make orders. Some have really cool beading.
I ran into Reid Barnhart! Yes, the jacket lady of Warrenton. She is visiting Guatemala with a few friends on tour. Too bad, I didn't get a photo and we were not able to meet up the next day.
Back to Pana. Long days work is done.
