This lady showed us how to spin and invited us over to her little house for warmth when we were waiting for a bus back to Chacapoyas after visiting the ruins at Revash.

Sometimes kids want cash for photos but these lovely kids in the North of Peru only wanted to see their images on my digital camera after I took their photos.

I met these guys when hiking in Huaraz.  They had to check my ticket for the National Park.  It was late and they insisted I stay in their hut rather than pitch my tent for the night.  Had a lovely evening with them. They were super kind and made me tea and let me use their cooker to cook my noodles.  We spent the night chatting about the differences in culture between Peru and Scotland and the price of apples since I had that day tried to buy an apple but ended up with a kilo since that’s how they sell fruit in South America!!!! Still it didn’t match the time I tried to buy a banana on a boat in the Amazon and ended up with 22 bananas!!!

    Great photo’s Angie, the kids look so cute, I always wonder what happens to them as they grow up,
    You are gaining some knowledge of the world and it is brilliant you are sharing it.
    Take care, lots of love from Eileen and Gus xx
