On Sunday we drove to Sayulita, about 20 miles south for breakfast at Rollies.  Rollie is a retired teacher from California who after retirement opened his restaurant in Sayulita. He has quite a reputation for not only his food but also the restaurant's atmosphere. He gives everyone a warm greeting and you never leave the place hungry.

After eating we walked through town and found a small store selling authentic Oaxaca/Zapotec carpets. Not only was the walls covered with carpets for sale, there was a loom set up with a new carpet being made.  Although we had just bought a carpet a few days ago at the market, hanging on the wall was another runner that we liked. So now we have two of them.

Each Zapotec Carpet is an original with no two being the same. The weaver designs each one as it's being made.
