Las Bailarinas Bolivianas

Era muy caliente hoy en la Fiesta Hispanica de San Luis - 104 F./ 40 C. Which is nearly as far as I can get in my poor Spanish. When I walked up to these ladies, pointing to my camera, I did manage "¿Permiso, señoras?". to which one of them replied, "Sure, no problem. Are you from the newspaper?"

This festival wasn't so big. St. Louis has a smaller Hispanic population than many other American cities. Attendance was low do to the severe heat but the performers were fabulous. More of them over the next few days.
