was my assumption that Timoteo was a weaver. Well, I think he
did that when he had time, but it appeared upon arrival that he was
more of a coordinator of the community weaving project. His
house was stuffed with goods made by others. I spent a good
portion of my day at two different weaving centers.
must get a lot of tourists. I didn't really expect tourists
to come to Pitumarka, ever, but every weaver at the first project
was dressed in traditional clothes. Each woman wore three or
four layers of skirts. You can't help but look fat in four layers.
Timoteo said during festivals they wore up to eight layers.
I don't see how they could dance, let alone move. Anyway, there
was color, hats, weaving and a whole lot of Quechua! It was
a feast of sounds and colors.
