Inca Trail, Winay Wayna, Peru
One of the outlooks from the Winay Wayna Inca sites. What an amazing view.
...and yes, if you are planning to do the Inca trail you will walk all the way up from the bottom to the top! I have so much respect of the Incas who built this site with nothing else than their muscle strength.
the most beautiful smile in the world, Peru
This Peruvian girl in her traditional clothes playing with the donkeys had the most beautiful smile in the world to me. Poor but happy - this is something the westernised world can learn from.

The women from the Sacred Valley produce their own clothes and sell it to travellers. The wool used comes directly from the llamas and Alpacas.

Machu Picchu Inca ruin
The slightly different sunrise at Machu Picchu. I did not know what to expect when waiting for the sunrise. Since Machu Picchu is almost always covered in clouds, I did not expect a sunrise until I saw the clouds being lit up by the sun.
