Chris in our lodge in Puerto Maldonado. This week we’ve already swapped sticky and sweaty weather for stormy gales and rain.
Happy New Year! Would’ve wished it earlier but our flight from Peru back home took all day from the 31st till the end of the 1st as we stopped in Brasil due to an ill passenger who sadly lost his life. A terribly sad occurrence and stark reminder of how lucky we are to be alive. No resolutions. Just 2 reminders: enjoy every moment & see a doctor if you have any symptoms that are out of the ordinary (whether it’s a sudden pressure behind your eye or a constant tummy ache).
Apparently this end of year grid is the fashion now. I loved going through my pictures of 2017 - nothing like looking back to make you appreciate all the good things. As always the best memories are of spending time with friends and family. 2018 will be even more of that: family & friends are first. Much ❤️ to you all and HAPPY NEW YEAR!
These ladies sit in groups holding baby llamas or their fully grown alpacas all around Cusco. If you give them a couple of coins you can take their picture and pretend it’s all natural
Inca terraces in #moray Cusco. Each step is oriented with the sun and wind in a way creating a huge difference in temperature between each level. It is believed that the Incas studied the effect of climatic conditions on crops here
