Inti Raymi Celebration, Cusco perú.

During the Inca Empire, the Inti Raymi was the most important of four ceremonies celebrated in Cusco, as related by Inca Garcilaso de la Vega. The celebration took place in the Haukaypata or the main plaza in the city.

The Inti Raymi (“Festival of the Sun”)was a religious ceremony of the Inca Empire in honor of the god Inti, one of the most venerated gods in Inca religion.

According to chronicler Garcilaso de la Vega, Sapa Inca Pachacuti created the Inti Raymi to celebrate the new year in the Andes of the Southern Hemisphere. Since 1944, a theatrical representation of the Inti Raymi has been taking place at Sacsayhuamán (two km. from Cusco) on June 24 of each year, attracting thousands of tourists and local visitors. The ceremony was also said to indicate the mythical origin of the Incas. It lasted for nine days and was filled with colorful dances and processions, as well as animal sacrifices to ensure a good cropping season. The last Inti Raymi with the Inca Emperor’s presence was carried out in 1535, after which the Spanish conquest and the Catholic Church share it.

Ok. First this is not a original dance of Perú, is original from ours brothers of Bolivia, but with the pass of the time we share it with them becouse their was a part of our country before than Españoles cut our territory, making Bolivia.

“The Marinera is a dance which highlights the courtship of males from the north, always assisted by his hat and scarf because of the sun throughout the year in this land. And not forget the women flirting, blowing his large and decorated skirts. A dance where complicity is reflected in the eyes of the couple looking to conquer the other.”

Sometimes we are so busy in our travels, with tours and all that, and we forget the most important, the journey. A friend once told me: I do not travel to escape from life, I travel to that life does not escape from me. Tip: When you are traveling, sit a moment, breathe, look, live and feel everything around you, enjoy that moment, is a new world that you’re discovering, is a new vision of life that you are sharing.
