Tarqueada de Putre


Tarqueada de Putre - Three days dancing and drinking more than 3600mt over sea level.

In March the people of Putre get out of their home for a three day party: dancing, praising and drinking.

They are thankful to the "Ño" , a kind of a saint who cares and protects them every year.

They throw a lot of "confetti" (candies) and flour, and drink a lot of liquor.

Every detail is a sign of the simplicity and the happiness of living in the middle of the Cordillera de los Andes, between Arica and Lago Chungará.
