Weekly Travel Photo / by Vasiliki Papadopoulos

This photo was taken in Cuzco, Peru in 2010. Unbeknownst to the group of us traveling, it was Peruvian Independence Day. We were witness to a massive parade in celebration of it in the city's central square. This shot capturedone of several military factions that marched in support of the country. The face paint represented the Peruvian flag colours.
