Photographer's Note

elections of Miss Amazonia in Aguarico, selva region in Ecuador.

---Beacuse of comment below I am going to copy my note from photo "chica caliente":

"Women are most interesting part of travelling in Latin American countries.So I am going to go on the edge of TE rules and post women's portraits."

This is a reportage photo presenting public event in a exotic location, showing ethnic model in a ethnic style dress. Banning it just beacuse there is a part of woman body would be an act of unimaginable hypocrisy

-----to Isabelle:
If you know them well you probably know that there might be more tribes whose typical outfit is now a second hand t-shirt than a waistcloth. Those girls ten years ago were running around naked, but now, thanks to petrol company paying for exploiting Huarani land have become very fond of good brought in by Colombian clothes salesmen.
