It will take a week before life in Peru returns to normal
From 20th July onwards Peru is either celebrating or preparing celebrations. The events’ character can be equated to colourful folk festivals. Attendance is compulsory. Every house has to fly the Peruvian flag. Even the smallest village puts on its own procession. On Friday 26th July, accompanied by rousing music, the schools march. Even Diospi Suyana’s kindergarten children are proud Peruvians. For most Peruvians the national week of celebration is an unofficial extra week’s holiday.
On the above picture you can see children attending the state disabled school dancing. All in all the days of celebration are a good idea.
