The market begins to come to life.
A big surprise was a new museum right on the second floor of my hotel! A typical clothing from this area.
The area is also noted for its mask makers.
A confradia outfit.
Their hat, staff and special shoes that are made to order and only they can wear.
Typical women's clothing from the area.
Shamans candles and utensils. You can see shamans at work in the Santo Tomas church.
It is a wonderful museum and I was given an excellent guided tour.
Herbs used by shamans
There were also weavings for sale. Mostly from Nebaj,
The stalls in front of the hotel entrance are now in full swing.
And the streets are busy and crowded with shoppers and tourists.
At the edge of the market the tuk tuks wait for fares.
