Congratulations to "Ciclonudista Peru"

Like most Sundays I enjoy reading the news and the interesting articles from my favorite Peruvian newspaper (it is in spanish).
For my surprise the normally conservative society where I was born had a very especial event. A group of cyclists decided to protest peacefully against the chaotic traffic in Lima. The one responsible for 3 dead cyclists from the beginning of this year.
Their protest was to ride their bikes naked. Yes... naked. But after a successful negotiation with the authorities of the municipality of Miraflores they transformed this protest in a colorful display of happiness and democracy.
And the reaction? very positive, adults and kids went to see how a group of persons use their right to protest. Many families where smiling at the nudist group. But the democracy was the common topic!
