Searching For A Traditional Papakha Hat In Azerbaijan & Georgia

papakhaWhile traveling to new countries, I’m always on the lookout for traditional, local hats. However, in recent years I haven’t really bought any new hats since they can be a pain to carry around during a trip.

In the past, I’ve shared some of my World Hats here. My collection probably comes in at around 15-20 hats. It’s been years since I last shared a post about a hat.

Jumping By the Georgia State Capitol

During our visit to Atlanta I was happy to see that the Georgia State Capitol building was located downtown and was easy to get to from some of the other sites.
