Mexican Sweater

This item is something that means to me and my culture. It all starts in Mexico, when I was 10 years old I was in the main city of Mexico known as Distrito Federal. That is in the north of Mexico, which is cold most of the time. When I was there it was so cold that my mom forgot to pack me a sweater in my luggage. While my aunt was driving us into stores and mall to look for a sweater I didn’t like any of them. There was one store that had sold clothes that were hand made mostly sweaters blankets and scarfs. It was so interesting because the items were made there. There were some sweaters that I liked because the design were so fascinating and also they were so comfortable when I tried it on. I ended up buying a sweater so did my brother, mine is black and blue. This sweater means a lot  to me because it reminds me of those days when I went to Mexico.
