Snapshot Stories: Vendors in Peru

This is the kind of woman you will encounter if ever in the Andean city of Huaraz, Peru.  Often wearing a hat, sometimes with a niño (child) strapped tightly, always with a pop of color.  They are always walking, dancing or working in their “polleras”, which are fluttery skirts that range from very basic to very elaborate.  In this photo, we were exploring the mountains and came across these beautiful ladies in basic polleras as they prepared choclo (similar to corn on the cob but larger kernels) and cuy (guinea pig) for sight-seers.  Their stripes and neons immediately caught my eye ;-).
