we were delighted to have a wedding in our little church up in the hills. it was the first wedding we have held here and it was beautiful.
Our view at dusk
Seeing as the "bride and groom" are in their 60's, they didn't want all the bells and whistles that usually accompany an event like this. There were maybe 15 people in attendance, some of whom did not have any "wedding" clothes to wear. I love that our church doesn't discriminate or demand that people come dressed up, not for service and not for a wedding. Unfortunately every other church I know that exists in Cusco does have a sort of dress code. Many "believers" won't attend a church or sit next to a person wearing "Yanquis" (Sandals made from recycled rubber, typical for the poor and those who work in the fields).
by their faces you'd think they were at a funeral, but apparently Cusqueñans do the straight face for any formal photo. It is so hard to get them to smile, you say "whiskey! (cheese)" and they do this.
