Peru in Color (1 of 2)

Friday, August 19, 2011

Peru means ‘land of abundance’ in Quecha, a remarkably appropriate name for a country whose diversity and incredible beauty are beyond all my words to express. The country’s myriad colors signify the richness of its culture and the exuberance of its people.

Peruvian ceramics, locals at the Inti Raymi Festival, dyes sold at the Pisac market, a weaver in Arequipa 
corn farm in Calca, an alpaca, rooftops in Cuzco, buildings in Machu Picchu, mud and adobe house in Huaran
Urubamba market, a Peruvian lady, a blue vase on a blue window
The above photos were taken during our trip to Peru in June and July 2011.
