Faces of Peru


When I travel, I love having contact with the locals. It is always great to see people's way of living, their clothes, their customs and traditions, and most of all, the little kids.

I found the people of Peru to be very warm and hospitable in most parts of the country, whereas in certain regions like Colca, I felt that the people were more reserved. What I loved most in this region, though, was the red cheeks of the little kids. They were so adorable! Most women were dressed in their traditional clothes, except for the city folks, and it was lovely to see them in their braids, bowler hats, balloon-like skirts and alpaca wool accessories.

I have compiled a bunch of photos to show you the different faces of Peru. Do enjoy the photo montage!
