longest post ever!

As I promised... more pics from my trip! it was so fun and such an incredible experience. I can't eve begin to put into words what a wonderful trip it was. So maybe my pictures can speak for me!


This wonderful lady was carrying her little baby on her back. This is seen very often there. It's how they carry the babies around as they work.


This little girl was the cutest little thing! She kept running at me full speed smiling, which was funny, because most people tend to look shy or uninterested in the whole picture thing. And then us, over here in the us, have our kids trained to say CHEESE!!!!!!!!!!!!!


This cute lady and little girl we saw in Cusco. What a wonderful city! It always broke my heart though to see the kids cheeks so chapped! All the little kids cheeks had been burned so bad that they were blistered over.


This would be my Brother in Law... trying to ride the Lama, which by the way, there were TONS of lamas! They don't spit as much as everyone says...


These sweet little girls where there in cusco too. All of these people we saw at the top of a mountain called Saxywoman. It's a big area of inca ruins. Very cool.


Here are some more of the kids. And one old lady who kept asking me to take her picture!










And then at 6am, the morning after arriving in Machu Pichu, Me, Dave, my BIL, and his wife climbed to the top of wannapichu, the highest peak overlooking Machu Pichu. Incredible it was!!!

That was one great long post. My favorite was the little boy standing in front of lots of colorful stuff--I'm guessing the market.
