In Sight: dancers in traditional Peruvian dress

Peruvians love their festivals and parades! I saw quite a few and took these photos of dancers dressed in traditional costume whilst in Arequipa. They were part of a parade, dancing around the Plaza de Armas in front of the Cathedral. Their waistcoats are beautifully embroidered, using the same technique as the traditional hats you often see women wearing.
