Peru had a rich cultural life thousands of years before Pizarro turned up in funny clothing. Wander around colonial cities that echo the legacy of Spanish conquistadors, explore the ancient Inca capital of Cuzco, visit the lost city of Machu Picchu and ponder the enigma of the Nazca Lines. Peru also boasts some of the most spectacular scenery in South America. The beautiful Peruvian Andes issue a siren's call to top-class trekkers. These mountains are also home to squillions of indigenous highlanders, who still speak the ancient tongue of Quechua and live a traditional way of life.

It had been a long, dusty ride out of the canyon and back up into to the highlands of Peru, an undulating, treeless land carpeted with grass that danced in the cold wind. I found the vapor coming off of my bowl of mutton soup to be having a deeply sedative ... Read more >

I found myself here by accident. Rusty high school Spanish and youthful bravado is to blame for boarding the wrong rickety bus at the noisy depot two hours ago. Nestled in a valley cradling a murky brown river, somewhere between Cusco and Ollantaytambo, ... Read more >

The Dunes of Colan

Wed, 27 May 2015 | By ametzger | Views [29] | Scholarship Entry

I work the latest fad, moon sand, through my tired fingers and allow myself to feel the advertised rejuvenating properties. I contemplate whether my feet would fit into the wooden box, gaze past the plaster partition ahead of me, and am reverted to the ... Read more >

We get off the train at our station. My husband/Sherpa and I are the only two passengers to get off the crowded train from Machu Picchu. The driver of the lone car parked outside gives us the once-over. Sherpa loads the car and we’re off. It’s been exhilarating ... Read more >
