I got back last week from 16 days in Peru. We arranged a private tour with a Tour Company in Lima. It was a very busy, but very fun whirlwind trip and we didn’t even see the Coffee and Cacao growing North or the Jungles of the Amazon to the East…
We went to Lima, Arequipa, Colca Canyon, Lake Titicaca, Cuzco, the Sacred Valley of the Incas, Ollantaytambo, Machu Picchu, Paracas, the Nazca Lines and even walked across a hand made grass suspension bridge. We took thousands of photos but managed to trim it down to the top 500 or so
The whole shebang is here:
