Folklore and Music
In South America every occasion is an excuse for a festival. Carnival is no exception. During this time in Curahuasi the kids can splash all passersby with water. It is also completely in order to spray heads unexpectedly with shampoo and silly string. Those who don’t like this should remain at home.
In the central square every year they show off their colorful costumes a folk dances and compete against the different neighborhoods. All the noise is really only disturbing at night. The rule, “After 10:00 PM is quite time,” does not exist in Peru.
