Living in the Land of the Ponchos

As winter creeps into our life here, and the days get crisp, we are looking to buy more suitable clothing. During our first winter we hadn’t acclimatized and while the locals were freezing we thought the weather was balmy compared to the “Land of the Long White Cloud” where we’d come from.

But this year it is different and we are looking in the shops and markets to buy warmer clothes. A surprising discovery for me in the local fashion world, are Ponchos. This is the Land of Ponchos. They are warm, easy to wear and can be worn with jeans or more formal clothes. And of course you can go for an ethnic look or something more modern.

So if you get a chance try wearing a poncho this winter – I am sure you’ll be hooked.
