Weaving workshops



3/27/2024: In order to get Barbara on board for the trip, I promised a trip to the weaving town. Here is a town where everyone is weaving rugs. I guess that busloads of tourists must show up as well, but they don't get there before lunch.

We drove a short way up the road to visit a small reservoir.
