After arriving in Pisac, we first stopped at a Quechuan church and got some amazing footage of the villagers waiting outside the church. All of the mayors from local villages appeared. Apparently, they all go to church then meet to discuss politics (here politics is as simple as which village needs water/ which needs potatoes) and then get some chicha beer after.
We went into the church for the sermon for a brief period of time before heading to the market.
After a one hour shopping spree, we faced a tremendous traffic jam when leaving Pisac due to a parade celebrating the Corpus Christi holiday. The guide and Walker ran to the front of the parade and were able to get an amazing view of the procession. Not something you see everyday that is for sure.
