I am flying out to Tucson tomorrow morning for training for my new job. I am elated to have been able to find a job in El Paso so quickly. However, I have been working in a more casual environment for the last few years and don't exactly have the most professional wardrobe. I was forced to cross the border to buy business attire because A, they don't seem to have many plus sized clothes here in Juarez unless I want to where an Aztecan-ish mu-mu and B, the clothes here are pieces of crap anyway.
Now here I was, 4 o'clock today, packing, when I realized I only had one decent pair of dress shoes. With no time to cross, I headed over to the ever-trusted 3Hermanos. Apparently it's a staple here in Mexico?
It was here I found out that in Mexico I wear a size 26. The biggest size they sell. Holy bigfoot. I never thought I would experience that feeling unless I visited Asia. Oh yeah, by the way, I'm a US size 9. What the hell?
I couldn't hold my grudge for long because I made out like a bandit. $386 pesos for two pairs of comfortable dress shoes. Let's see how long it takes for them to fall apart. Any guesses?
