Inti Raymi: Summer Solstice on the Equator

Los Juanitos in Calera village preparing for the "Taking of the Plaza" in Cotacachi

"If there aren't at least two dead by sun down, it wasn't worthwhile this year." (from Cotacachi community member as villagers faced off in traditional dance/stone throwing & whipping, just before the policia went nuts with tear gas)
