Today was Peru's Independence Day. While there were no big parades happening in Plaza De Armas (much to our surprise), there were plenty of parades happening in the street next to our hostel.
Each time we heard the music, we ran out to see the dancers and the entertainers perform in their lively fashion - they as well as the onlookers were having a fun time (and again plenty of beer was being consumed by all!).
Little Miss 8 loved the colourful costumes, in particular the boots the girls wore (she did think the skirts on the outfits were a little short - thank goodness!).
Master 3 hated the fire crackers and we had to cover his ears each time they went off but he is coming around to the fact that they go off on these special events.
