    Taken: Inca Trail, Peru @ March 8, 2006
    Our second day of the Inca trail hike, the most difficult day. Our goal was to walk 10 km to the highest point of the hike, 4200 meters, to the peak in the middle of the picture, (our guide said it looked like a woman breast). The peak is called Dead Women Pass, because it supposed to look like a woman lying down. It was really hot and sunny walking up I had to convert my convertable long pants to my shorts. On the way down from the pass, it was so cold (and we were in the clouds!) we had to put on sweaters, jackets, hats, and gloves! It was an awesome experience.

        Taken: Cuzco, Peru @ March 6, 2006
        Sacsayhuaman was the Temple of the Sun, the most important temple dedicated to the Andean Cosmology and their God. It's located just outside of Cuzco. The Cristo Blanco (White Christ) next to Sacsayhuaman was a gift from the Palestine Arabs to the people of Cuzco. On a side note, our tour guide called Sacsayhuaman "Sexy Women" to help us remember the complicated Andean name. This girl happened to lie down at the right place for me to capture. :)

          Taken: Sacred Valley, Peru @ March 6, 2006
          If you take a bus around sacred valley, this is the typical scenery you would see. Tall mountains in the background (some are snow capped), different shades of green throughout the valley, eucalyptus and red roof houses scattering around. (Larger version here.)

            A colorful house near Urubamba river, very different from other red brick houses in the area. (Note: It has been one year since I've started this blog, woohoo! :)

              Landscape around Moray where the Incas built terraces for botanical laboratory to improve their harvest. I've never seen anywhere this green before.

                Taken: Sacred Valley, Peru @ March 5, 2006
                This lady posed for me for 2 Soles ($0.75). You would find local people with their llamas or alpacas posing for photographs for money all over Cuzco and Sacred Valley area. Flooded tourists seemed to, if not completely change, influence their ways of lives.

                  Locals come to sell their crops and crafts on Sundays at Chinchero Market. Their main crops are potatoes and corns while their crafts are alpaca wool fabrics.

                    Taken: Sacred Valley, Peru @ March 5, 2006
                    Closed up pictures of the two llamas eating eucalyptus leaves. They looked like they were smiling at the camera, didn't they? At first I thought they were alpacas, but our tour guide said they were llamas. Llamas were bigger and had longer necks than alpacas. Both llamas and alpacas were local animals to the Incas and also to the current Cuzco/Sacred Valley locals. They were used to transport light-weight stuff. Their wool and meat were used for cloth and food.

                      Taken: Sacred Valley, Peru @ March 5, 2006
                      After an 8-hour flight from New York to Lima, Peru, 2 hours of sleep, and another 1-hour flight from Lima to Cuzco, here we were riding on the bus, finally on the way to Sacred Valley and enjoying the incredible landscape of Peru (and of course, their local animals, llamas and alpacas). The houses of common Incas were built using mud similar to the one in the picture. For the Inca nobility, their houses were built using stones/rocks, just like those in Machu Picchu.
