The town of the strange hat and even stranger shoe

After 17 relaxing hours courtesy of the Bolivian transport industry we arrived in the city of Sucre and before we knew it were whisked off by a taxi driver to the market town of Tarabuca. It seems to be the fashion here for the men to wear hats that were in vogue in the 1700s. I´m not saying that the Bolivians are lacking in the creativity department but Hello... the best you can do is something the conquistadors wore 300 years ago. Where they got the inspiration for the shoes though is one of those great travel mysteries. I´ll put this one down to the side effect of chewing too much coca leaves
