A week or two ago we were sitting in Parque Calderon and two Expat's sitting nearby were discussing haircuts. One proudly stated that there's more expensive places in town, but he goes to a small shop in the alleyway that leads to the rotary plaza and is charged only $2. William also asked our friend Burt where he gets his hair cut. Burt's preferred place is in El Centro and is also charged $2.
When walking along Calle Larga we have often passed by a barbershop called "The Original." It's a traditional barbershop complete with the old-fashioned barber chairs and back bars. Early in the day one of the barbers would often be standing outside catching a little fresh air between customers. William decides this is the place to get his haircut!
Twenty minutes later a smiling William emerges from the shop with a nice haircut and $4 less in his pocket.
