Peru, Parades and Processions

If you travel to Peru, you’re bound to catch a parade any time of the day, any day of the week.  We just happened to be in Cusco on December 8th - a special day for many catholics around the world - a day they celebrate the Immaculate Heart of Mary Festivity - a national holiday in Peru. And what is a holiday without a parade or two?!  

                            

 

The parade passes by in front of another church that overlooks the main plaza, the Iglesia de la Compania de Jesus (1571).

About

Welcome to my travel photo blog. Photography has been a part of my life for a long time – back in the day the Pentax Super Program was always near at hand. But it wasn’t until I started travelling around the world that photography became a vehicle for me to show others about the absolutely amazing and complex world we live in. My hope is to share with you glimpses of what I’ve seen. Enjoy!
