Getcha Shoes Shined Here

In the Jardín (our main plaza) and in front of the San Francisco Church, you can get a shoe shine.


There's no excuse for scuffed shoes, because a shine costs only ten pesos—less than a dollar.

But I think the more important service these guys provide is a moment of rest on a warm day, and ten minutes of conversation. It's a way of pausing for breath, of chatting with friends, of indulging in a small luxury. You go on your way feeling a little better about yourself, knowing that you're looking good.

You won't find this at the shopping mall.
