#17 Quiriza Independence Day Celebration

We went to Quiriza for Bolivia's Independence Day Celebration
They had all the school age children do physical education races
and then they dressed in costume and did some dances.

All the children marched in and were dressed alike.
Each school in Bolivia has a large cemented futbol (soccer)
playing area.  The school may be very tiny but they all have this
large covered area.  This is where the children performed.
They are just getting this area covered.  When it is finished
there will be cement bleachers on one side.
