“sexy llama” we learned is what you say right before you take a photo, like “say cheese!”. It usually does make people smile!

Looking for ‘to-go’ food we came across a marching band carrying this huge icon. It was pretty exhilarating, nice music, very loud, but poor Gus still home in bed.  The next morning we took a boat to the islands lead by guide extraordinaire, Bruno.IMG_4069IMG_4067IMG_4053

Here he explains the differences in the colors and styles of hats and what they each represent; white on top means “single”, red means “married” and the brightly colored one in the next photo, and in the one on Gus, is worn by the town leader.IMG_4217IMG_4215
