As promised in my last post here are detail photographs of the feathers worn by the most unique flute players I’ve ever seen, at one of the most entertaining fiestas I’ve ever attended. I counted at least 500 feathers on each cape worn by the flute players. It of course begs the question where the hell do they get them from? What kind of bird are they and how many does it take to make one of these outfits? Like many things about Bolivia, these questions remain a mystery for me. I only hope I’ll be back some day to find out.
More to come soon.
