Julie got an email from a friend last night who lives in Brazil.
She was walking down a busy street in Rio, rocking her Ssekos.
A total stranger approached her and asked excitedly, "Are those Ssekos?!?!"
Said stranger had received a pair herself for Christmas. They stopped and chatted for about 15 minutes about Ssekos and compared notes on how they wear/tie them.
Really? Strangers in Rio, just chatting about Sseko.
Stranger in Rio, if you are reading this, make yourself known.
