We set off this morning to walk to the organic market. We took a slightly different route and walked for a couple of blocks on a cobblestone street. Boy, they are so hard to walk on. They actually have a special shoe here, called the San Miguel Cocktail Combat Sandal. A shoemaker designed them for his wife and now they are a huge business.

As we walked to the market, we passed several interesting shops. In one, a young woman was making things out of pop can pulls. She had purses, a vest, a skirt and top, change purses, etc. All kinds of things made out of them. And then she had things made out of the cans themselves - like airplanes, boats, cameras. Very inventive. See the work at http://bio-imaginarte.com/
We also stopped in at the Art and Design market, which was also on our way. There was mostly jewellery and clothing there and someone selling coke can hats. I can't imagine they are very comfortable!
Once we arrived at the organic market, we were pleasantly surprised by how large it was. Lots of vegies, handcrafts, herbal stuff, etc. And lots of vendors selling food for lunch. So of course, we had lunch there and then bought our vegies and headed for home. It was a fair walk but not too bad, we even stopped at the grocery down the street to pick up a few things that we couldn't get at the market.
Tonight we went to a small theatre near our place to see "Gunsmoke", the radio play. They had a small group of actors that read two episodes of the radio play in front of microphones - no costumes or acting, other than voices. It was pretty good, they even included the commercials for cigarettes!
