Testimonial: A Little Exotic, a Bit Three-Sheets-in-the-Wind, a Trifle Oh-Behave, Yippee!

At the Real Deal Brazil, we really do get the best testimonials. That said, this just-received unsolicited review from former Oregonian Lito Croy, who now lives in Antigua, Guatemala, ranks right on up there with the one from the Texan who couldn't remember how he'd ended up naked on a Puerto Rican beach chasing a chicken.

Lito wrote us:

I figured it was about time to let you know how much I love my Original RDB hat. Let's just put it this way -- traveling through Mexico and working as a bartender in Guatemala I have been offered and turned down high tech gear swaps, muchos drogas, booze, exorbitant amounts of money, AND a threesome with two VERY attractive Swiss girls in exchange for my hat. Sometimes I have to drunkenly sprint away from hoards of hat-hungry gringo tourists just to keep it on my head. Needless to say, it's a good hat.

How's that for a review? Buy one.

How's that for a review, indeed!

So we asked Lito for a few pictures, since the original email contained none. Our hero (and really, who doesn't now kinda wanna be this guy?) sent the two you see here, from some of the Guatemalan bars he's worked at.

Lito's note that came with the photos:

We're very professional. The (top) photo includes the two Swiss girls previously mentioned. I had some more great shots but I got too drunk on my birthday and inadvertently donated my camera to some random Guatemalan. ...I hope they like looking at pictures of my weed plants.
