■”Panama hat” originated in Ecuador

I think Panama hat is so cool. However do you know the original place is not Panama??
Acutually true Panama hat is made in Ecuador. In those days, USA president Theodore Roosevelt wore a hat made in Ecuador when he visited in “Panama!”
That is the origin of the name. Hahaha. Really we have to say it is Ecuadorian hat…

I bought a hat ‘Diego Tuquiñahui’ at a stand next to the central church.
They sold every hat in 15 US dollars!!

↑Nice hat!

Because South America is a lot higher and the sun is close, the hat is required.


■First haircut at overseas

For the hat, I decided to have my hair cut earnestly grew during the journey!
After I checked some barbers from outside, I chose one which is popular for local people and has good atmosphere.

For my case, I chose a hair-style like a hollywood dandy actor from a hair-style catalog.
However she cut like a young man walking the street in Cuenca.
I found that hair-style of young people in Cuenca is similar!!! Hahaha.

It was 5 US dollars with two people.
