Children's Day

Last sunday (August 6th) was children's day in Chile. I took this picture in a little square in the Bellavista district, in Pio Nono street. As you can see, there was a lot going on. Plastic masks are a very common toy here. You can also notice three guanacos (look hard and you'll find the third one). You can see guanacos (scientific name: Lama guanicoe) in many squares in Chile. For some money you can take a picture of your child beside or mounted on the guanaco. If you ever encounter one, don't bother it. They are very sensitive and if they feel threatened they will spit at you!!!
