Corpus Cristi

Today starts Corpus Cristi here in Cusco (even though tomorrow is the actually holiday). Today, 12 of the different Catholic parishes will walk their saint to the main cathedral in the Plaza de Armas. Tomorrow, they will have a parade in the Plaza and will walk their saints in processionals and then put them back in the Cathedral. Next week they will do it all again when they take their saints back to their parishes. Basically, it’s party time in Cusco. There will be parades and processionals from just about everyone you can think of and many more you couldn’t think of from now until the end of the month.
