Guatemala-One of my favorite country-Their mountains, their lakes are unbeliverably breathtaking. I was so overwhelmed with all the workmanship on the clothes, handbag and scarf , they are all heavily emboided I couldn’t help but bought them all. I still remembered at Chi Chi market, street vender all have mobile credit card reader holding in their hands!. What an amazing discovery.
At the end of my tour in Lake Atitlan, I discovered a shop selling Boots made with Local Sheep Skin. They were amazingly soft along with beautiful workmanship. All the boots were hand-made by a local Guatemalan man. I found this out because a french lady was actually taking care of the shop and I was trying to negotiate with her regarding the price. She told me the owner was seriously ill and she would appreciate if I do not ask for discount. Well, I did not and bought 2 pairs of boots. Check this out, they cost me $100 in totally, but I am guessing if I have to buy them in NYC, they will cost me $180 each because they are hand-made, real sheep plus SNAKE PLUS HORSE skin!!!!
