What: mediana, 100% algodon pre-encogido
When: May 2004
Where: a quaint little t-shirt shop in Oaxaca, Mexico
Why: I did a study abroad through BYU-Idaho to MesoAmerica (Mexico, Guatemala, Belize. I tend to spend a lot of money way too quickly, so, I was trying to be disciplined and not buy everything I see at the beginning of the trip. The first week in Mexico City, my friend Julie found an AWESOME black t-shirt with the Aztec sun on the front. I wanted it. But, I told myself that I would find something I liked better down the road and I should save money. Three weeks and 12 t-shirts later, I hadn't found anything better than Julie's shirt. I settled for this somewhat similar shirt in Oaxaca (pronounced "We-hawk-a"). I still don't love it and I really wish I'd just bought the first cool one. I got back home with $200 extra spending money because I'd been a little TOO frugal.
