Chinchero is a small village near Cuzco, Peru. Last year I visited it for the second time (33 years apart). I really enjoyed going there: the white buildings (horizontal and vertical lines), the blue sky with the white clouds, the colorful dresses. The atmosphere has changed drastically: well-organized markets and children being taught about their culture instead of begging. A place worth visiting.

I fully agree, Peru is a wonderful place to visit. Here are some more pictures of my last visit:


Great place - as many around Cuzco. Visited Cusco and many other places in Peru, Bolivia, Equador and Chlile in 1983 :-)


I visited Cuzco some years ago, many things to see and to learn!
