... table and it was struggle to finish it even if it was really tasty.
Paja Taquilla was another hat shop, just a few doors down from the bakery, so we stopped in to see more hats. This shop was actually more educational than the museum we visited earlier.
Panama Hats actually originate from Ecuador and it's the only place where they are made by hand. All hats invariably have some mistakes/defects which determines the different degrees ...
