Paseo de Chagra, Machachi, Pichincha Province

Chagras are cowboys who wear chaps of alpaca-hide and leather hats. They work the local ranches in the high paramo of the Pichincha Province near the Volcano Cotopaxi. Each year, they gather in Machachi to parade down local streets and to pit themselves against one another in tests of skill at the local rodeo.
