Our guide was super friendly. Tour is relaxed; a chance to see how people live outside of the city. Carolina’s weaving workshop is first rate and very interesting. Lovely weaving to purchase. Not a big museum but gives you enough of an idea. Otherwise, some walking which we enjoyed. Carolina , our guide answered all of our questions very well and with good humour. Fun day. Thanks!
