This summer I led an expedition in Peru. The team and I stayed in a rural village in the Sacred Valley, close to the well known Inca ruin of Machu Picchu. Although Machu Picchu is visited by up to 2000 visitors a day, no tourist visited this village during our stay. The kids were fascinated by us all and introduced us to their games such as the playing with this spinning top.
The highlight of our stay, for me, was the Sunday market. People came from surrounding hamlets and filled the market with the vibrant red ponchos traditional of the Quechua people.
