Another interesting sight

Couldn't help myself - I had to take this lady's photo. Why would she be wearing 2 hats?? Any thoughts?

My guess is that on her trip into town that day she realized that she needed to buy a hat for her husband. Being that her "back pack" is full, and she has to keep her hands free to hold on to her son, the only option that was left was to wear the second hat on top of the first. Quite ingenious if you ask me (even if it is a little silly looking.)

Perhaps the other hat to put on the ground and is for ones to put money in when she selling whatever she has on back?

OR A BROADWAY MUSICAL "WHERE DID YOU HTOSE HATS?

Alice - that is a baby on her back so I hope she wasn't selling that!!!

It is very obvious that one hat is a sun hat and the other is a rain hat. Given the erratic weather in Cuenca, the sensible person takes 2 hats when they go out. Just swap 'em over depending on the weather of the moment. You can deduce the hat on top in this photo is the sun hat.

He he good answer Lynne, maybe if I see her again I can ask her eh?

My suggestion is she is trying to keep the underneath hat clean

Marcos y Elizabet said...

Catherine - they would just put a plastic bag over the top - we see that all the time!

It is old hat protecting the new hat!

Kellie you are probably right but then again - you would have seen this kind of sight hundreds of times!
