Chronologically, from the arrival?
Ok, so we arrived in Tarapoto with Star Peru on Christmas day. First time flying with this company, and as far as this flight was concerned, the service was ok and we arrived on time.
Already upon the arrival I was impressed by the nature: hardly ever I start taking photos immediately while off the plane, but this time I did.
Therefore, dear reader, you can only imagine my astonishment, when on my first night in Tarapoto discovered a surreal Christmas wonderland mounted on the central plaza of the city.
There were lights, there was a platfrom with statues of Mary, Joseph and the Baby Jesus, there were llamas dressed in coloruful Christmas clothes (I first thought they were fake too), there was an electric train with colourful light and music riding the people around the plaza, there was candycotton salesman and whatnot!
In fact, people seemed to be having amazing time: families were together, children were excited and salesmen were making good sales.
We withdrawn quietly from the spectacle and went looking for some dinner.
