A thank-you postcard from Chile

Chilean Folklore
8 Mar 2014 | From Hernan of Chile

The postcard shows the national costumes of Chile, particularly worn in the Central-Southern Chile. Those men are called "Huasos", while the women are called "Chinas" - from a Quenchua language word that means female). Huasos are galant with their hats and spurs, and the expensive "chamantes" on their torsos. They are embroidered with intricate details such as the Chilean national flower: copihue. Whereas the Chinas are ladylike with their flared, flowery dresses. A traditional dance called "Cueca" is danced wearing these costumes.
