When we went to Harbel for a baptism, a boy with a large metal bowl filled with lapas walked by. Judy decided she wanted to buy a couple. The neighborhood children were very interested in this business transaction. Each lapa cost the equivalent of $3.35 each.
Here you see the young businessman with his store on his head. Lapas are about 2 yards of bright cloth that women and girls wrap around them for a skirt. Mothers wrap their babies to their backs using a lapa.
