Hats at the Market
It seemed like each day a different town in the valley held its big outdoor market. On the day we rented a car, the small town of Ocotlan was holding its market. It was huge, selling everything from locally grown herbs and locally made chocolate, to manufactured items like big stacks of colored plastic containers. And hats, lots of hats.
The town's biggest church was right there by the market too - we had to check it out, of course. We bought some religious prints much like the ones here from an old lady sitting out in front. Then we had to leave Ocotlan and go buy some black ceramics and mezcal, plus visit more churches (stay tuned for those). It was a busy day!
