The first few attempts to arrive in San Francisco were frustrated by road construction and mud. I was when I finally arrive in he village the blouse that I thought had come from here was not what was there. The blouse is a combination of running stitch and smocking almost all are embroidered in red, the skirt is a colorful commercial material and in almost all cases a apron is worn. The town was very friendly and a number of villagers help find people to photograph. They even stopped to woman in the lower left photo who was carrying here fire wood home.
