Big Hats Reckoned by Spinning Planets - Bolivia

If you were to see them, there would surely be a blur of motion. These big hats belong to the countryside and to women who are infamously shy and not bound to smile for anyone or any camera. Enigmatic? Perhaps but as speakers of languages that are older than most civilizations they certainly are not inclined to explain the way they feel or address the differences in life or lifestyle. Assured by thousands of years of history, they live as they always have done, away from the crowd and as a primal part of a natural rhythm that is reckoned by spinning planets and the movement of the sun. And when and if I have the opportunity to see them, I simply love the hats!
