My Bohemian World 
Beautiful women of Kalash, “who legend says are part-fairy and part-human because of their ethereal  beauty. Local people say the Kalash woman can make a man lose his  religion. As the story goes, when a Kalash woman drinks water, you can  see it streaming down her throat. Yet they are considered impure in  their own community; they are also called ‘whiter than the white.’” Sources: article here and photo here.

thatbohemiangirlWe are the music makers,
And we are the dreamers of dreams,
Wandering by lone sea-breakers,
And sitting by desolate streams;—
World-losers and world-forsakers,
On whom the pale moon gleams:
Yet we are the movers and shakers
Of the world for ever, it seems.

~Arthur O'Shaughnessy, "Ode," 1874
