What I wore today, 23 nov 2010

With my blousy trousers I felt a bit like a South American gaucho! Minus the fact that they are cowboys, meaning their cattle will eventually be led to slaughter.
That rope with the two balls at the end is just another version of the lassoo; the cup with the (metal) straw is traditionally made from a calabash and used to drink hierba mate, a sort of tea - I drank some when I was little and if I remember correctly, it had rather a bitter taste but I think I liked it!
I didn't actually wear the beret!But it does look cool, doesn't it? ;)
