  We were sad to leave Bolivia but excited to visit our last country in South America- Peru.  Our night bus to Cusco allowed us a few hours on Puno to visit the floating villages . These really are extraordinary but you do get the feeling ... Read more >

PERU | Sat, 22 Jun 2013 | By flashfury | Photo Gallery | Scholarship Entry
