A Japanese girl wearing an old kimono after her grandmother. Handmade from silk with hand printed pattern. Originally, "kimono" was the Japanese word for clothing. But in more recent years, the word has been used to refer specifically to traditional Japanese clothing. Kimonos as we know them today came into being during the Heian period (794-1192).

Plaza Dorrego is a square located in the heart
of San Telmo, in Buenos Aires, Argentina. In the 19th century, San
Telmo was the main residential barrio of the city and Plaza Dorrego was
its focal point.
Here you usually find someone dancing tango. On sunday evenings there is a milonga were the locals dance in the square.

Easter Island, Chile
Until you visit Easter Island, it is difficult to grasp just how remote it is. By some measures, it is the most isolated permanently inhabited place on earth. Driving through the uninhabited countryside you suddenly see giant stone heads sticking up from the ground. It´s a WAW! Unreal.
Anakena beach, Easter Island. The moai pictured here was the first to be raised back into place on its ahu in 1955 by islanders using the ancient method.
The only sandy beach on the island.
