From John N.
"A cultural exchange between Latin America
(Peru here) and Eastern Europe might be fruitful."
"At right is an example of a "Bahianaise," a woman wearing the huge Brazilian crinoline, the typical outfit of the Salvador de Bahia county (northern Brazil).
Photo taken with my own camera."
"Just came back from Brazil; this is me (below) with another Bahiana while
touching her skirt. The petticoat looks to be of plastic foam. She is a very
nice person, like all Brazilians that I met, to tell the truth."
