You see the trouble is that Otavalo has one of the best markets in Ecuador and my school is right next door. There they are piled up in the market like lollies in all sorts of rainbow colours knitted in the most delicious warm alapaca wool. To make matters worse they only cost about 7 dollars each.....its just too easy to succumb. I'm convinced that I need one for each day of the week. I need help, soon my bag will be full of them.
