PERU: The People - part 1

I've been rather busy since returning from our trip to Peru, and it has been slowly killing me to not spend time with my images. But when I recognized that one month ago today, we began our trek on the Inca Trail i knew I had to get crackin'. It's hard to believe it's been a month already. I am going to break the images up into several posts, categorized by topic. To kick things off, here are a few photos of people taken throughout our visit. Questions and comments are always welcome.


On the (many) flights we took to get to Peru, I kept stealing glances out the window and had to pinch myself every time. Just couldn't believe I was heading to Peru. Out loud, several times I leaned over to Erin and exclaimed, "we're the luckiest damn people in the world." Having neglected the travel bug too much in recent years, the importance and awesomeness of the experience was definitely not lost on me. However, now that I am home I am enjoying one of the best parts of any trip:  being home.  So, as I begin the process of image editing, I thought it would be fitting to kick things off with a little tribute to all of it's "cheep," muscular glory.



Made it home from Peru on Wednesday night. It kind of felt like limping through the finish line of an incredible race.  The flight schedule was miserable, very tiring and left me feeling drained and rather sick. We woke up at about 7 am Tuesday morning in Cusco, Peru and were pretty much awake until 11 pm on Wednesday night. 40 hours. Ug. Although I just want to sleep for days, I couldn't help but download, import and begin looking through the thousands of images I created. I can already tell there will be a few more sleepless nights ahead of me as I make my way through the editing process.  Rest assured however, select images will hit the blog soon.
