Story 8: The City of Kings

This photo was taken in the town square of Lima on the 18th of January, 2017. This day marked the 482nd anniversary for when Lima was founded by the Spanish conqueror Francisco Pizzaro. The anniversary is celebrated on this day with different cultural and artistic festivities. Particularly worth mentioning is the big parade through Lima called ‘pasacalles’. Dancers and artist perform typical folklore dances (as seen in the photo!). It was very enjoyable as the whole city was in good spirits!
