Funny. Somebody just told me that early Peace Corps volunteers were banned from wearing Birkenstocks.
The reason given was the fear of locals thinking they were just yet more lefty teachers, like the ones who came to help out following the revolution. These were apparently known as "the sandalistas".
Is this true? I don't know. I really hope so.
