But getting back to those bulls, what’s the deal?
Well, I get all my information about things by asking the first random person I meet. I never ask TWO people because sometimes I get contradictory information, so I have to go and do tedious RESEARCH, and then one person turns out to be wrong (very rarely is it the case that seemingly contradictory answers are BOTH correct…and when it is, the whole subject is way too complicated for me to be interested in).
So, one time I was in Cusco and I asked some Peruvian dude about the Bulls on the roofs and he said that people put them up there and fill them with Chicha (which is the alcoholic version of the popular corn drink in Peru), and that it’s for good luck.
Well, that sounds plausible enough for me. Case closed!
(P.S. it WAS my fault, I was posting things back for January 3rd, 2009…one more point to the programmers…dang and blast it!)
