Here are some of the people I met and photographed during our trip to Peru in December 2000 to January 2001.

These photos look like something out of National Geographic. I can't believe what a different life they have from us. I feel so lucky to have had a chance to visit Peru and to see your love for the people and to develop some of that love myself. You're going to have such a wonderful experience!
