Purple Robes and Happy Wells

On the start of a 3 day long visit to see the peace corps water projects down around San Vincente de Cañete. Nice coastal community about 2 1/2 hours south of Lima. Most of this month the town is celebrating El Señor de los Milagros de Nazarenas (or lord of miracles) which has to do with a mural of Jesus in Lima that remained standing after a massive earthquake in the 18th century. Processions go through the town with people wearing purple.

On the first day we did get to visit the nice community of Roldan where the water authority are very proud of their town well. This unit serves the ~2500 people in town.
