Cuentos de Fotos: Vendedoras en Perú

Este es el típo de mujer que encontrarás si estás en la ciudad andina de Huaraz, Perú.  Frecuentemente están llevando un sombrero, a veces con un niño cargado en la espalda y siempre con un toque de color.  Siempre están caminando, bailando o trabajando con sus polleras, lo que son faldas revoloteantes que oscilan entre muy básicas y muy elaboradas.  En esta foto, estuvimos explorando las montañas y vimos estas mujeres bellas en sus polleras básicas como prepararon choclo y cuy para los turistas.  Sus rayas y colores de neon me llamaron la atención inmediatamente 😉 .

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 ;-).

21 – 2 Legends, 1 Day

Obama inauguration

Wooo Hooooo!  What a historical day to celebrate.  Today, January 21st, Martin Luther King Jr. Day, America’s president was sworn into his second term.  No matter how opinions differ, this day will be forever marked in history and these two men will be remembered for what they are: legends.  Congratulations, President Barack Obama.  And thank you Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. for being one of many that battled, believed and triumphed.  They have motivated me and countless others in the world.  Take a look…
