Second Hand Shops
Something very shocking, and quite disheartening-about Tegucigalpa is that most of its clothing stores are second hand. But it's not like the Fuencarral street shops of Madrid, where "second hand" means modern or chic. In Tegucigalpa clothing from the United States: are the "bales". What are the bales? It's clothing donated by Americans to "inhabitants of the third world." This clothing ends up being sold in these shops. When a store hangs the sign "open bale" in its window it means that the last bundle of clothes arrived from the United States ... Much to ponder, very disheartening.
