Easter Parade in Quito

One of the most famous Easter parades in the world happens in Quito. Heather generously gave us the morning off to go in and watch. What we realized while straining over the crowds to get a glimpse of the parade was that it's famous for its size, not it's content. Twenty minutes of watching hundreds of people walk by in an assortment of costume and dress turned out to be enough as it started to get very repetitive. It was an amazing cultural event to witness and was made even better by not taking up a substantial part of the work day. Check out the pictures below for the highlights.
