Kuya Raymi 2012

Kuya Rami is one of the four festivals celebrated here at Katitawa.  This coincides with the September Equinox which falls on the 22nd this year.  It is a day when ancient civilizations all over the world knew that something was different,  The day and the night was the same length.  Here in Salasaka, I am sure they did not see much difference, but they did notice that on the Ecuadtor, just a few kilometers to the north they found that at noon, if you put a stick in the ground there was no shadow.  (I will have some pictures of our little celebration tomorrow.)
