The German mennonites of Santa Cruz... and their hats

Further to a previous post, I managed to get some distant, paparazzi shots of some Mennonites at the Los Pozos market, where they come to buy and sell farming supplies... and apparently hats.

This culture really interests me and I'm trying to get out to visit one of the colonies but they are proving to be quite inaccessible. There is also a Japanese colony around here - which is even more inaccessible - but I have been told it is very old and traditional and the women walk around in kimonos!
I never knew these cultures existed in Bolivia.
