Get your tools...

A day trip to the markets in Sabugal. My favorite stalls were those selling tools and traps and pots and all sorts of farm and working implements. It gets very cold here and there is a very big fireplace culture both of warmth and cooking. The cast iron pots are used for cooking soups and stews in the open fire and vary in size. Then there are the bellows to get the fire started, woven palm fans used to get the coals started on a bbq and little brooms to sweep ashes and other bits around the house. Bird traps, rat traps, sickles, bells, horseshoes, seed planters, funnels... so many interesting things.
