I am on a layover in Mexico City on my way home after an incredible 3-week adventure in Argentina. The purpose of the trip was to conduct research, obtain interviews, and take muchos fotos while learning a lot about the culture, customs, and traditions of the region. I came away with plenty of material for several magazine articles I am developing.

This May 2017 image of an #Andean #indigenouswoman at her loom was taken in #CuscoPeru. The pre-Columbian #Incaweavers were considered to be technically the most accomplished the Americas. With up to 120 threads of yarn per centimeter, their highly decorative textiles symbolized both status and wealth. The fine cloth was used as both currency and a tax with the very best of the textiles becoming the most prized of possessions, even more precious than gold or silver.

This May 2010 image of middle school aged girls was taken at a #rugmaking #school in a rural area outside of #Cairo. Part of each school day is spent on #vocationaltraining ensuring pupils finish school with both knowledge and a potential job skill. The detail and patience required to #weave the individual threads and colors into intricate patterns are remarkable.

The early morning truckloads of fresh cut flowers arriving from the countryside and the many workers scurrying about to begin the day’s tasks serve to make the energy and activity palpable.
