In between january and april shepherds from the western Andes live at highlands in the Andes along the whole country. Then the rain ends and dryness starts to reign, so in June when rain begins in the coast and practically everything is dry at the mountains, the families of lomeros start to prepare their stuff to come down to the coast. Usually is in august that they are at their camps along the “lomas”. the Peruvian coastal hills.
