Peru – los israelitas

In Peru there is this religious group who call themselves “Israelitas”. They don’t cut their hair and beard and the women cover their hair. Their sacred place is a little village on the Amazon river, called “Altomonte de Israel”, but you can see isrealitas everywhere in the country. They will be very happy if you call them “hermanito” or “hermanita”.
