This week is actually a pretty big deal here in Solola. It Is the Feria titular de Solola, which occurs every year on August 15th. The days surrounding the 15th are full of parades, performances, concerts, and there is even a carnival. On tuesday two of our friends from Chaquijya came to Solola to go to the carnival with us. It was so much fun! There were a few giant Ferris wheels (ruedas) which, unlike those in the US, rotate at about 60mph, and some other questionably-safe rides.
