VolksliedBolivianos, el hado propicio
Bolivia is a real hat country. You can see from the hat which region the person is from and often you can also see whether someone is married or not. There are about 300 different types of hats! Most Aymara women wear a sombrero or bombín (bowler hat). Legend has it that a large batch of bowler hats arrived by mistake in Bolivia and that a clever saleswoman convinced the Aymara women that wearing a bowler hat guaranteed fertility! Salar de Unyuni is with an area of 12,000 square km the largest salt flat in the world, located in the southwest of Bolivia. 40,000 years ago this plain was still part of a huge prehistoric lake, Lake Minchin.
