Would these work under a set of leathers??

From there we walked across to the entrance to the market place/street. We saw this guy in a wheelchair that was painting with his mouth. It was amazing!! While some people complain about their life and what they can or can't do, here's this guy, in a motorized wheelchair making the most of his situation. He had an attractive assistant who as it turns out is his girlfriend. We bought a few small canvas paintings and spent the next 20 minutes or so taking to the two of them. This guy really is an inspiration. He had a great attitude and was just a really nice guy. He said he can draw pretty much anything we would want so we told him we would email him a picture from our trip so he can paint something for us. It would be great if you guys could check the guy out. Take a look and buy something. His sheer determination warrants it. Its good karma, you know. Besides, it's pretty cool stuff. He has some videos on YouTube at and his email is

After that we did the typical tourist things. Bought my sister a t-shirt that says "you can't scare me, I have twins" (which she does), checked out the guys throwing the fish around and even surfed on a pig:

We also saw this. I like to call this series, "sleepless in Seattle":
