Googling around for something or other, I ran across this link:
FRANQUEMONT, Chris, The Chinchero Center for Traditional Culture, Cultural Survival 6.4, October 1982.
I’d just like to say that typing in a reference and putting a link in it also gave me a moment of torturous flashback to years of parsing those with Perl, and I officially don’t care if that’s a pareseable reference, mwaha! Bite me, principled markup! You own me no more.
But I almost snarfed my morning coffee when I read this sentence:
Chinchero residents have always been regarded as independent, even contrary, by their neighbors.
Indeed, I’m going to have to ask my mother how far and how firmly her tongue was planted in her cheek to keep a straight face while making such an understatement. And yet it’s something I’d never really thought about in such simple terms. I simply can’t argue that at all; and I’m sure that most people who know me regard me in exactly that way, too.
Anyway, those of you who enjoyed the Waylaka article might find this 25-year-old article by mother interesting as well.
