: I only wear my hat when travelling.
: I wore my fedora in Egypt last year and the year before that in Turkey.
: In Turkey a street vendor recognized the hat and yelled "Indiana Jones" after me and tried
: to sell me a pair of pants which he thought looked like Indyīs, they didnīt but I was so
: flattered by him calling me Indy and dr. Jones that I bought a pair anyway.
: So donīt be afraid to wear the hat in public, one thing is certain you will never be lost in crowd.
: Wonderful tale! It reminds of the story of some friends of mine, a married couple, who visited Petra in Jordan. That's the temple used as the holding place of the Grail in the Last Crusade. Anyways, while visiting the site, they asked a Jordanian to take a picture of them in front of the temple. He didn't understand at first but when my friend pointed at the camera the Jordanian smiled and said, "Ah, Indiana Jones!" I always loved that story. Happy exploring to all.-CP
