Dance, Dance, Dance

Sunday, February 3, 2019

Yesterday, our guide told us about a large dance competition being held at the city stadium this morning, in honor of the Virgen de la Candelaria. Folk dance groups from around the Puno District come to the city every year for this competition. This year, there are 112 teams competing. The teams vary in size, and can be up to 200 – 300 participants. The competition starts at 6:30am, and thousands of people come to watch. Check out this video of one of the groups.

We decided to get up early to see some of the dance groups. We stood outside the entrance for the dancers, and were rewarded with so much color and excitement. We saw several teams in the short time we were there.

Then, we were off to the airport for a flight to Lima. We arrived in time to walk to the Larcomar Mall for the sunset and a little shopping.
