Peruvian dancers in the village of Chivay in the Colca Canyon, Peru. Those are guys wearing the hats which resembles a lampshade! Very strange! The girl is wearing a style of hat unique to the Colca Valley. Far more flattering! ;o)

Wished my “combover” guy was wearing a hat like this. Neat colors!
Nice capture- love the vibrant styles in this culture x
Thanks Anita! I too love the Andean culture with their wonderful bright colours and intricate designs!
Thanks Dawn! This was at around 6am and at high altitude! Rather them than me, hahaha! ;o)
was it very hard on the breathing up there then krys,dawnx
It was OK until at around 13000 feet I forgot myself and ran upstairs! Boy did my head pound for hours! I was generally OK when I was awake and could control my oxygen intake, but when asleep and the breathing slows, I suffered some horrid headaches! Eventually, towards the end of the trip, I became acclimatized! Better late than never, eh??
wow lucky it did not ruin the holiday dawnx
No – the food poisoning nearly ruined the trip! ;o))) I need to go back to Peru in good health!
Nice candid shot Krys. The colors are great, and I like the expression on the man to the left … sort of squinting through the tassels.
Thanks Richard! He probably felt a bit of an idiot wearing a hat like that, do you think??? ;o)))
Great costumes! Lovely colourful capture!
Yes; it would be hard to maintain a serious face under the tassels :)
So glad your ok..and got to enjoy the trip…Awsome colors…interesting hats…love it so fun festible looking:) huggggggggz
