A huge procession in honor of St. Jerome was staging right in front of our hotel. Bands were warming up, costumes getting last minute adjustments, and even some attempted llama coaxing to convince him to go along with the program.
The procession included bands, dancers…and very feisty llama, culminating with a huge likeness of the saint carried through the streets on the shoulders of a couple dozen men.
