4:45 Man whistling

5:49 men talking softly in Spanish

7:07 Leo: So I¿m in front of the Cathedral. There¿s not many people out here today, it¿s a beautiful day. Gorgeous, god, it¿s got to be in the upper 60s, low 70s. Clear blue sky, denim blue as they call it. The Cathedral¿s pretty nice and clean, the whole town seems pretty clean today. So let¿s see what happens sitting here looking at the cathedral.

11:33 more pigeons in flight, honking picks up

13:02 Leo: the birds that you¿re hearing flying are pigeons that are basically shuttling across from the park where I¿m hanging out across from the cathedral to the steps of the cathedral. So you will hear them from time to time

54:24 Alex: I¿ve got an other group over here on the right, Leo, that are about to come marching in. Leo: They will get some celebration, and then they will go out after the flag is raised. This is, you know, very patriotic, every Sunday they do it. I figured you just want a lot of the marching, things like that, nothing else¿ Usually see military uniforms¿here we go¿

I don¿t recall the names of them but¿ Caroline: but they are traditional Andean? ¿ Leo: The last two were Andean tunes.
