Third Trip to Huancavelica

On this, our third trip to Huancavelica, we saw more white fields:

We saw oats bundled in the fields:

We saw a new town market opening up for the first time:

We saw the rugged Andes Mountains, with patchwork farms where few people on earth would dare to climb. In the foreground of this picture, you can see the road that we traveled; it has been cut in the side of the hill:

Farm fields scale right up the face of the mountains:

And in Huancavelica, we had this view out of our hotel window:

The landscapes and people on our scenic drive to Huancavelica never disappoint us.

We love stopping by from NYC for a visit with you in Peru. Your posts and pictures are amazing, showcasing the culture and your work. Please import a few of those beautiful tapistries produced by your members. They are so incredibly beautiful. Also love your roadsign collage!

Some of those farms don't make any sense. How can they cultivate vertical ground? That's amazing!
