"Then I knew that Panama hats weren't made in Panama but in some country not far from Panama, so my guess was Colombia. Shouldn't that give me an extra quarter-point? (This is a bit embarrassing as I have owned a genuine Panama hat from Ecuador. I knew more and had more money then....)"
no quarter point for you, say that colombia is almost panama is like saying that you live in usa and you are part canadian
And to make things absolutely clear: I never said that Colombia is almost Panama. Colombia is just geographically closer to Panama than Ecuador is. Just to explain my mistake.
And a real Ecuadorian hat is a wonderful thing....
Feed the trolls!
They need it!
