Day 3 – Trujillo, Peru – A Fun Moment

While we were waiting for the Chan Chan tour, we visited a restaurant that featured dance performances.

Alcatraz is a dance performed by a couple with paper streamers tied to the back.  The couple takes turn trying to light the streamer with a candle.

The picture does not do justice in showing the absolute hilarity of this dance. The man is a volunteer from the audience. He was no dancer, but he was quite adapt at avoiding the flame.

It was his turn.  We were in tears watching this man chasing her “tail”.

Marinera is a more traditional couple dance. It is a very graceful and romantic dance that reenact the couple’s courtship.
