Fiesta de Santiago

While in the Mantaro Valley region of Peru I was told about a vibrant and colourful festival in the nearby town on Sicaya. The next day I took a local bus to the town and found the town square, which was full of revelers. I was quickly adopted by one family who offered me a continuous flow of Peruvian beer and allowed me to photograph their processions. On the second day I returned when they visited the graves of their loved ones, which was an incredible experience.
