Aymara women take part in a Fiesta de la Virgen de la Candelaria celebration in Copacabana, Bolivia. The town is on the shores of Lake Titicaca, a huge basin perched high in the Andes Mountains. Skilled fishermen, the Aymara are also famous for their distinctive homespun clothing that echoes colonial Spanish garments: Men wear conical woolen hats with earflaps, and women wear wool bowler hats, like these seen here.
