Sandal repair!

I bought these flip-flops 5 years ago in Ghana for about $.60. With the exception of that time I got off an overnight train from the beach and forgot to change into better urban-exploring shoes and they blistered the soles of my feet (over an inch in diameter) while wandering Bucharest, they could not have served me better. I was pretty bummed when one broke a few months ago, but I finally got around to taking them to the shoe repairman who sits under an umbrella at the end of my street - the one who wears a Red Sox World Series shirt. For a whopping $.15 he repaired them, and let me take pictures!
