Spectacular dancing by folks from Oaxaca in the plaza in front of Santo Domingo Cathedral. This young woman was the star--along with her dress and skirt. She is making the skirt "florea"--or swirl.
Love the laugh of this woman, selling flowers for Day of the Dead in the huge market at Tlacolula. Vibrant. As the writing on the wall behind her says, she is "especial"!
Alina Mecott wears her "resplandor" or head-dress, traditional for "Tehuanas"--women of Tehuantepec. Such a lovely person, Alina has a natural grace to her, even in this heavily starched piece of cloth.
"Tehuana" style was the clothing chosen by Frida Kahlo, including this head-dress, to define herself as Mexicana. She painted herself in a very similar outfit.
Alina Mecott in a different version of traditional "Tehuana" clothing. Here, she reminds me of a flower in bloom.
This woman is shopping for Day of the Dead in the market at Teotitlan del Valle. So noble.
