A GLIMPSE OF QUECHUA LIFE

(Version française plus bas)

When the women have a moment to spare, they dedicate themselves to the art of chicra, which consists of plaiting dyed straw into bags or key chains. While the children are at school, they sometimes go for a walk to La Nariz del Diablo mountain.

DANS UN VILLAGE QUECHUA

Dès que les femmes ont un moment de liberté, elles se mettent à tresser des brins de paille colorée pour confectionner sacs et porte-clefs. Cela s’appelle l’art de la chicra. Pendant que les enfants sont à l’école, elles vont parfois se promener du côté de la montage La Nariz del Diablo.

    I love these photos of the kids! How did you receive permission to photograph them in the classroom?

  3. Hi Danielle,
    I was the teacher, and the villagers seemed to be okay with me taking photos!
