Life in Pozos – More from La Fiesta

We’re coming down to the last day of the annual celebration to honor the town’s patron saint: El Señor de los Trabajos (The Lord of Work). Yesterday was a busy one for Pozos — the day before was quiet because of heavy rains. We wandered around in the evening, looking for yummy food from the street vendors and photographing the scenes encountered. We saw tons of market stalls, food stalls set up everywhere, carnival rides, street dogs looking for scraps, indigenous dancers in colorful costumes and headdresses, and people of all ages making their way on their knees to end their pilgrimage at the church at the top of the hill.  Here’s some of the scenes I captured yesterday.

    fantastic , once again! The colors of the headdresses are dancing in my head. all the great visuals make up for non stop cohetes (rockets, fireworks) thru the night.

    Great pix! LOVE the Indian headdresses! Do they make them themselves or buy them somewhere? The ferris wheel shot is great! The decorated buns look good too LOL
