Cholitas Woman Going To See Her Granddaughter   3 comments

Cholitas Woman — Images by kenne

It’s a short boat ride
connecting two peninsulas
in Lake Titicaca.

Wrapped in a woolen shawl
she proudly holds her
velvet bowler hat.

Her family waits
in the plaza next to
an Inca God statue

where family members
line up for picture taking
with grandma holding baby.

Until a decade ago
Cholitas women were
banned from public places.

Cholita Grandma –Photo-Essay   3 comments

Our next stop was Tiquina where we took a boat across to the peninsula that Copacabana is on.
Waiting for the boat I noticed a Cholita grandma who I pictorially followed to covered our crossing.

The world is full of travellers.
Once in a year go to someplace you have never been before.
You will meet Confused seekers, Hopeful wanderers,
Enthusiastic story-tellers, Happy families.
Look into their eyes and stuff your eyes with wonder,
live as if you’d drop dead any moment.
Look at the world. It’s more beautiful than any dream you’d have ever seen.
Make the most beautiful travel diary and open it up your third generation
because only your grandchildren will understand what your children will fail to.
