Young soldiers getting ready to march.

This time of year is graduation in Peru, and today there was a large parade in the central plaza of Cusco to celebrate it. The director of the private schools in town began the proceedings with some announcements, and then the kids began marching. Their uniforms were either military style or more traditional, and a band constantly played while they marched. The parade drew a large crowd of gringos, parents, vendors, and bored siblings. It was great to watch.
