No running water, barely any electricity, and a small cot for a bed.... This was definitely not what I was used to. The other night we stayed in a tiny village with the nicest people who wouldn't know the difference from their Marshalls and their Chanels but they couldn't have been happier. A host family kindly opened up their house to us and welcomed us in. It showed me that even the people who have the least to offer, can still try and give so much. Living off of virtually nothing didn't wipe a smile off their face or seem to get in the way of their fun loving attitude. Although to us, the woman's soccer t-shirts didn't match their long caci skirts and their worn out flip flops but it seemed as if the women of this village had adapted their own style based on what was a available to them. They had made due with what they were able to afford and what was clean that day. A lot of woman's hair was either in tight braids or tucked away under a headscarf. However, I believe these styles had a lot more to do with keeping their hair out of their face on hot days than keeping up with the current hair trends (even though headscarfs are becoming quite popular). This experience has made me realize that one's style is not only based on what they like in accordance with the current trends and seasons, but it can also just be based on sole availability and affordability of the garments.
