"We have many colors," Cusco, Peru

Handicrafts are a major business in Peru. Weaving, knits, alpaca wool, ceramics, and much more. Markets were filled with innumerable choices.

When a tourist approaches a market stall, often stacked floor to ceiling with a variety of the popular blankets, the merchants begin their patter. Seeing their eyes wandering along the array of blankets, they immediately put in "We have many colors..."

To me, that seemed pretty obvious.
