... as a gift for buying something. Aww, thanks moo! I will wear it forever...or at least until the end of my trip. After lunch our guide shows us how they make clothes out of the marijuana plants that grow wild all over the valley and then dye them with indigo plants. She shows us how they make food using some stone-age looking thing. She also shows us the instruments they play made from buffalo horns. These villiages are self-sufficent.
