March 23 continued

This is part of the parade that went down the street in front of the Mission Office.  These are the banners for all the provinces in Bolivia.

The high school kids all marched in the parade.  These young men were nearly all carrying flags.

This is another group from a high school in their uniforms for school.  One school had a band that played the traditional Bolivian flutes, but I didn't have my camera with me.  I just stepped out of the mission office to see some of the parade.

This is a city with a navy and no sea.

There were a few high ranking officers on horses.  We liked this guys medals and the horse's head-dress.

These are all women and they were very precise in their hand movements as well as the marching.

In the Plaza, they had all kinds of "flags" made from flowers for the celebration.  It was quite a sight.  Now you have a taste of the celebrations in Bolivia.
