Uros woman sitting on the bridge between Peru and Bolivia, spinning Alpaca wool.

As soon as I pointed my lens at this woman, she turned away from me. I went over and explained to her, I was just interested in her spinning. She wasn't having any of it. Then I said, "Tres Soles?" She looked back up at me and said with a smile, "Cinco Soles" I replied, "Estas Bien, continuar que estaba haaciendo y voy a tomar una foto" So she went back to what she was doing and I backed up and snapped a few shots. Notice how she is smiling. I'm betting she's thinking silly gringo just made me a paid model lol.
