quite unrelated to the “flip flop” incident,, I have shoe woes.
the 3 pairs of carefully selected footwear are all giving me grief in different ways:
1. my favourite read/green girlie massuer sandals, bought in rome several years back, gave me toe blisters. i have just ditched them in a fit of rage
2. my hiking shoes, which were perfectly fine in peru, gave me a heel blister. am perservering with them.
3.my flip flops remove skin between the big toe and the one next to it, unless i wear my toe socks with them
i am seriously considering [shock horror] birkenstocks or [even more horrified] teva sandals.
hint for potential travellers: carefully road test all footwear shortly before embarking upon journey.
that is all. thank you.
