Today I went to the national culture museum.
It has artifacts from the pre-incan, Incan, colombian, and colonial period.
The craftmanship on the pottery and the bronze work on the pre incan were amazing.
The museum had a mummy found in a cave. Though not visible from the photo, you can see a large blue ring bellow where her ear would have been.
And though the ear ring is long gone the can tell the size and composition from its imprint.
They also had a cool collection of incan gold jewelry.
By the incan period the indigenous craftsmen already mastered the art of welding, lost wax casting, alloyeding and gold plateting.
The museum also contained many carvings and paintings from the colonial period. I thought this cross was cool.
After the museum, I went to a shoe shop. The soles of my shoes were coming off. I tried some “shoe goo” before leaving, which worked for a little while but after Cotopaxi, they were come off again. So i found this place, it’s an odd little shoe repair shop.
And an hour later. the guy had my shoe done.
He glued my soles, and stitched around the entire bottom of the shoe.
All in all im happy this $5 repair job saved me from having to buy a new pair of shoes.
Take it easy,
