St. Peter's Day #1



Today is St. Peter's Day and a special date for fishers on the peruvian coast. Huanchaco was the perfect place for this celebration, local fishers made one big "caballito de totora" which was taken by some soldiers while fishers took St. Peter Statue on prossecion from the Huanchaco Church, they make this big boat just for this day, every year. People was waiting for "St. Peter" two hours.

I hadn't realized these boats were so big!

Qué serie de fotografías tan interesante. Nunca había visto botes como estos caballitos de totora. Tú sabes si estos botes duran mucho tiempo en buenas condiciones? A los más pequeños que muestras en otras fotos se les podría llamar las "góndolas" de Huanchaco. :)

Saludos desde Boston.

Reed boat. I like it and the energy expended to move it. Nice shots.

I hope you have a nice weekend.
