Carnival in Peru – and let the whole world wait

 

Boarding the bus in the Bolivian Copacabana, unreal and some sky-high road along the lake Titicaca, a couple of new stamps in the passport β€” and we actually, without knowing it, was in Peru in the town of Puno on the shores of the great lake… And then immediately started in surprise. First, the way our tuk tuk barred fun orchestra shining like a copper basin the peasants with no less radiant tubes. Then whizzed past a gaggle of girls in sparkling dresses with pisnicky crinolines. And then began the hour and a half looking for the hostel, most of which were fully occupied, and the remainder was worth a minimum of 120 salt (1,200 rubles) for a room that did not meet our idea of the prices in Peru… Perplexed, we asked someone what’s going on here? And then everything fell into place… We were in Peru at the most opportune time β€” in the midst of the popularly beloved annual Carnival. πŸ˜‰

These days the city never sleeps, the music went, and dancing do not stop! In Puno attracts teams from all over Peru β€” each in their costumes, with its program and your mood!

First performances are held at the main stadium of the city β€” with a mandatory program, judges, assessments and other necessary attributes seriously-organized event. And after that team throughout the crowd spilling into the streets of Puno, where the informal part of the holiday β€” she’s the most fun! πŸ˜‰

All the avenues, alleys, streets and lanes are filled with music, fun, screaming, singing and dancing. And there is no one competes all just adapting to the rhythm, start to dance and forget about everything!

In the eyes is full of bright colors, lush feathers and blinding sparkles, which β€” as diamond fully studded costumes or fashion…

The predominant colors in these days β€” hot pink, sky blue, piercing red and, of course, blindingly gold…

Carnival obedient to all and all! From little princes and princesses…

… soft floral Duimovochki…

… and quite strange in appearance β€” whether pretty girls or handsome…

… to fashionistas older…

… and those who have already managed to live quite a impressive life β€” but today is clearly brushed shoulders with more than a dozen!

And this applies not only to women! Men in this day too β€” one and all β€” feel real eagles and ruthless Heartbreakers…

… under which no one can resist a woman!

On carnival the streets it takes a whole life β€” with all its worries, chores and daily themes. Here people communicate…

… argue and discuss current…

… going on about her β€” about a girl…

… dream and live in the clouds…

… primping before an important meeting…

… rest before the new performance β€” music…

… and dance!

Breakfast-lunch-dinner β€” after all, nothing human is alien… πŸ˜‰

… and, of course, drink is a favorite of all Peruvians and absolutely inevitable on any holiday beer!

Further, the words almost gone, and symbols, faces and emotions, still heaps! So enjoy a few more Peruvian beauties β€” in silence for a while… πŸ˜‰

And some more images that are etched in my memory especially deep. Pensive and concentrated grandmother of the girl in pink…

… stunning mask, so never and not Baring his real face…

… and surprisingly serene grandmother, with a smile walking in a long-abandoned rails in the lush, swaying in the rhythm of each step, dress…

And yet β€” in memory very vividly and clearly hit many smiles! Yes, in this wonderful day the whole city smiles β€” in a common, unconscious and very sincere impulse!

And no one is annoyed by the fact that the city is not pass-no pass! Still all things these days has long been abolished, and business concerns and forgotten. And people only live this holiday, only this music and this dance, believing that every boy is a brave knight, and every girl is a beautiful Princess…
