The Hat Shops of Bogota’s Calle de San Miguel

For one long block of Calle San Miguel, AKA Calle 11, at the northwest corner of the Bogata’s central Plaza Bolivar, milliners and hatters are given pride of place. About a dozen shops line the pedestrian-only street whose creations are attached to names such as ‘Pork Pie’, ‘Monaco’, ‘Indiana’, ‘Panama’ and ‘Montana’.

I’m going to skip the ‘Pork Pie’ but I’ll probably go back and try on the ‘Indiana’.
