Arequipa – carnival.

I just went down to the square in front of the cathedral to take pictures of people and came in the middle of what they called a carnival. Appearantly they have this every Saturday and it is a small procession. But the main thing is to spray each other with white foam and that was done with enthusiasm! In the beginning nobody sprayed me. But I saw a four year old girl who was to small to hit anyone with her aerosol bottle, so I bent down in front of her and let her spray me! And others followed her example.

I will just illustrate the spraying with pictures, no comment necessary!

But in the side streets the carnival was different.

Great fun, I had a good time in the middle of the action.
