Every Sunday the village of Tarabuco has a market which is aimed at both tourists and local people. Tourists come by bus from Sucre and the people that live nearby come by bus or by foot from the nearby mountain villages. Generally, Bolivia’s indigenous people don’t like to be photographed, but in Tarabuco’s market some people will ask you to take their photo in return for a few pesos. This woman, dressed in traditional clothing, was one of them.
