Today for class Patty took us out to the Plaza de Armas to watch the dance competitions that have been taking place throughout the past week. The kids come from all over to do traditional dances in Peruvian costumes in front of judges. The week is very celebratory and filled with life and the kids essentially get the week off from school. Our host mom was telling us her son has no homework during this week. It was really fascinating to watch the dances and know that each movement and the costume designs are symbolic for something in Peruvian culture.
The rest of the day was pretty uneventful, just some Indigo and chilling in Cusco.
