This was taken exactly one year ago at a massive and colorful May Day Parade in Cusco, Peru. He was one of several hundred dancers who took over, if for just a few hours, Cusco’s central Plaza de Armas. I could have done without the firecrackers but the dancers at whose feet they were exploding didn’t seem to mind.

I posted 21 photos of the parade from Cusco last year. Check ’em out here as you enjoy the rest of the holiday. 🙂

    We haven’t been to this parade, but we saw a dance quite similar to this on the streets of Cusco. Cusco is very touristic, but I found it such a charming city! This picture is really nice, you captured a great moment of the dance.
