Photos: Festival in Ollantaytambo

As promised, here are a few photos from Wednesday's festival in Ollantaytambo, called Bajada de los Reyes Magos. The festival celebrates the visit of the Three Magi to baby Jesus, and it's also the date on which the outgoing mayor passes power to the new one. A statue of baby Jesus is paraded around town, and the afternoon concludes with a humane bullfight.
