Oltavala market

Oltavala market

Oltavala is famous for its weekend market when Indians from around the region bring in all their handicrafts, etc. to sell. The whole town is transformed into one huge market. Every street seems to have a different theme. Woolen goods on one, paintings on another, hats on the next. Quite fun - take money. Big mistake on my part was bringing very little cash - none of the ATMs in the town would accept my card. Probably good in the long run, though we almost didn't have enough money for breakfast the morning we were leaving.
