Few days in Perù – People and landscapes of a new world

The first impression when i got to Perù was : ” wow, this is crazy ! “.

The population got used to old traditions and to old ways to do things, such like street markets, religious celebrations, or small societies that still live on floating islands.

Catholic religion, brought by the Spanish,
melts with old Inca’s traditions.

The typical multicoloured handmade clothes they wear(and sell), are lovely, comfortable and warm. Not to talk about others craftsman objects, very particular.

Landscapes are not missing. From  sea to mountains, through deserts, canyons, visiting huge archeological sites that lasted for ages, it is all amazing!

Here few pictures to try to describe this great country.
