Travel Photo of the Day: Two Baby Peruvians, Colca Canyon, Peru
On a beautifully clear, sunny September day in 2006 while visiting Peru, we headed to the Colca Canyon in search of one of the largest birds in the world, the Andean Condor. On the way through the canyon, our minibus stopped at a mountainside textile market where two tiny Peruvians were helping their family sell handmade blankets, hats and scarves to visitors. The air is so thin at that altitude and the light so white that the brilliant colors of the traditional Peruvian designs were almost blinding.
