Pukara would have been a relatively boring stop, if it hadn't been for the time of year.

We stopped to visit a museum and learn a bit about pre-Inca cultures, but ended up being fascinated by the Christmas festivities that dominated the town square.

There was a brass band, beer vendors and hundreds of people dancing around the square in all sorts of colorful costumes, and it seemed to go on forever. It looked like the entire town was out celebrating, truly an amazing sight.
