Ever heard of women wrestlers dressed in long, full skirts? Maybe you have, but I have not. What I like about living in foreign countries is discovering new customs and learning new ways of looking at life. But sometimes you learn interesting things just sitting in your chair, and that is what I did recently: I just sat in my chair, in front of my computer, and bingo, I learned something interesting. About women wrestling men as well as each other while wearing long, full, skirts. In a country I have never lived in or even visited. So today I am cheating. I will not offer you a story of my own, but give you this fascinating National Geographic post about brave women in Bolivia called the Fighting Cholitas. If you’ve never heard of them, this video of the The Fighting Cholitas of Bolivia will be interesting.

So what do you think? What have you learned about women in other countries that surprised you?
