When travelling, obviously I always look at how people dress. And in particular women, that gender that usually dreams to be elegant and so often is constrained.
This topic is of particular interest in Uzbekistan, a country that cumulates a heritage which is Islamic (where typically women have to dress modestly) and Sovietic (where typically women are equal to men).
An additional, yet important constraint to dress code in Uzbekistan, is dictated by the weather conditions: very hot in summer, very cold in winter.
This photo was taken in summer 2012, and I can’t help but wondering how it would have looked like if we were in winter. In summer women seemed to wear curtains, does that mean in winter they wear carpets? 🙂
