Object Mythology Travel Stories: Celebration in Town of Cañuahuas, Peru

After a few days in Arequipa, Peru we headed to by car to Chivay.  A three hour drive through the vast open space of the Pampas Cañuahuas we enjoyed seeing many vicuñas, alpacas, llama and sheep grazing in the open air.  We were lucky enough to come upon a celebration in Town of Cañuahuas where the sights, sounds and colors of the local people are so bold and vibrant – we enjoyed a bit of true local culture in this small town.

The costumes are simply amazing!

Love the costumes of the locals against the bright blue building.

Our favorite photo, check out the woman in the middle – sticking her tongue out!  Classic.
