Sombreros Are Us

April 17, 2013

   Last week, when Kathy and I were walking around Sevilla, Spain, I spied this little store on a side street:

Antonio's Sombrero Shop got my attention. Here's a shot in the window:

Great Spanish hats of all kinds. As you can see, lots of flat brims, even for the ladies:

And they had botas (boot leggings) as well, although I didn't buy any (I was doing carry on only and I was packed to the gills if you know what I mean):

Loved the little shops in the back streets of the quaint little towns. This is Olvera, Spain, one of the so-called White Pueblos, and one look tells you why:

The church is Catholic and the castle is Roman. Many towns in this region have a Moorish castle and a Roman castle and then a Catholic church right on top of everything. One victor squatting on top of the loser, squared.

"Life isn't fair. It's just fairer than death, that's all."
