Below you can find photos taken by Eduardo and Walter from Monday’s Blessing, and links to videos of this years procession that are appearing on Youtube. Nothing is more powerful in Cuzco’s life than the annual departure and return of the Lord of the Earthquakes from and to the Cathedral. It is also a very complex event with all kinds of side happenings and customs, including sales of flower petals, crosses of palm fronds and other objects of fronds, as well as family and group gatherings.

Enjoy.
