Cusco, Peru 2014

From 40+ degrees Colombian beach weather, it was a very different scene upon landing in Cusco, Peru at 3400m elevation. The South American vibrancy remained intact with all the colourful textiles, silver and markets. We made Cusco our home before making our way to Machu Picchu to get acclimatized to the extreme elevation. With all the amazing food, shopping and sights it was difficult to leave!

hours spent finding that perfect set of silver

Peruvian locals are not the most photogenic ;)

the colours of a peruvian market..love love love!

Extremely terrifying and agile Peruvian ladies..
do not take a photo if you are not prepared for a scolding!

Goodnight Plaza des Armes!
