Threshing - Chinchero 20 July 2007

A donkey is made to walk in circles on the straw. This separates the grain and chaff from the straw. The straw is then removed and the grain and chaff is separated by throwing it into the air on a windy day. The wind blows the chaff away and leaves the grain on the ground. This activity is common in the fields during the months of June and July.
