I finally got through the 1,400+ photos from our recent trip to Peru. There were so many that I loved, so I’ll be sharing a few (or 40) each day this week if you’re interested. Throughout our trip, we were constantly mesmerized by the beautiful colors we encountered in this country – from the textiles, to the people, to the city and countryside, everywhere you look there’s vibrant color .Peru_2013_005
