People look into a bullring to watch festivities at the Yawar Fiesta in Coyllurqui in the Peruvian Andes on Independence Day. This celebration symbolises the clash between the indigenous people (represented by a condor) and the Spanish (represented by a bull). The condor is paraded around town, strapped on top of the bull, given alcohol, and finally set free.
