Egipto's Three Kings Festival

The Three Reyes crowd, with the Iglesia de Egipto in the backgrond.
This weekend, the poor neighborhood called Egipto above La Candelaria is holding its annual party, the 'Three Kings Festival,' considered the symbolic end of the Christmas season. 

Lots of crowds, music, alchohol, cholesterol and calories. If you're into that, then take a walk uphill.

A view uphill into Egipto.

Partying in the street below the festival.

Pouring chicha, a traditional drink made from fermented corn.

Grilling up the meat!

Chicharrones. A moment in the mouth, a lifetime in the arteries.

Hiking thru La Candelaria up to Egipto.

Lots of police and security.

Meat everywhere.

A party on the street nearby.

Quite a crowd!
