Militant Childs Parade in Puerto Maldonado

Afte the 2.5 hour boat ride from the lodge back to Puerto Maldonado we had a couple hours before catching our plane to Lima.  School must have been closed that day for the parade in which every school seemed to participate.  School after school in uniforms marched by in Hitler militant style down the people lined main street in Puerto Maldonado.  There was no rhyme or reason to organization and a school would just jump in the middle of the parade if it was ready to go.  Compare that with the states where it is very organized and everyone is given the specific order they must go in.  The lack of red tape and yet still seeing everything come together was refreshing.

4 year olds?  Maybe 5 years old?

She did not want to participate in the parade.
