Country of the month: Peru
There’s No Need of a Sacrifice for this Inca Fest!
In June, Peruvians celebrate Inti Raymi; the Festival of the Sun. It is a religious ceremony that takes root in the Inca Empire. The ritual celebrates their god Inti as well as the winter solstice – the shortest day of the year. During this nine day festival, people attend expositions, street fairs and live concerts in honor of the god of the Sun, in order to have a plentiful harvest.
Go study at Universidad de Lima and you could be there next year!
