Diane had to take her new prescription sun glasses back to the local optometrist for adjustment this morning and from there we walked through the Thursday market in La Penita.  The uneven pavement and cobble stone streets requires careful attention as you walk and Diane tripped over something and scraped her knees. Nothing too serious and several people helped by offering band aids etc.

I bought a new fanny pack and another Myan shirt and Diane bought a pair of sandals at a small shoemaker's shop we visit each year.  Two years ago I made one of my "pull-top" hat bands for the shoemaker and this year his wife showed me a couple of purses made from pull-tops. I'm not sure if she made them but they're way beyond anything that I do with pull-tops. Before we left the market we bought a bunch of fresh green beans and a kilo of fresh strawberries for 25 pesos.
