Tying your own shoes –
Before looking at the ethnographic literature I experimented with tying up some simple sandals with mixed success. It turns out that it’s not as simple as one might think. Now I’m a connoisseur and am always making mental notes when I see old depictions, or in the old world, images on statues. For simple, soft lace sandals, the Tarahuamara style works perfectly. A single lace does everything you need.
