I didn't upload every single photo just too many (5 Cds full) so here is a sneak peak!

http://www.613-flavah.ca/peru/Colca/index.htm
This canyon is reportedly the deepest in the world, thought to be twice as deep as the Grand Canyon in the USA. Unlike most of the Grand Canyon, portions of the Colca canyon are habitable, with pre-Colombian terraced fields still supporting agriculture and human life.

http://www.613-flavah.ca/peru/Huaraz/index.htm
Huaraz is the most important climbing, trekking and backpacking centre in Peru. The city of Huaraz has been demolished several times by massive earthquakes and is therefore not particularly attractive. The surrounding mountains, however, are exceptionally beautiful, and many travellers come to Peru specifically to visit the Huaraz area.

http://www.613-flavah.ca/peru/Cusco/index.htm
The archaeological capital of the Americas and the oldest continuously inhabited city on the continent, Cuzco is now an important link in the South American travel network. Its legacy as the hub of the Inca empire is readily apparent: Most of the city streets are lined with Inca-built stone walls and crowded with Quecha-speaking descendants of the Incas. Can't forget about the legendary Machu Picchu ruins!

http://www.613-flavah.ca/peru/Puno/index.htm
Lake Titicaca in Puno, is the world's highest navigable lake and the center of a region where thousands of subsistence farmers eke out a living fishing in its icy waters, growing potatoes in the rocky land at its edge or herding llama and alpaca at altitudes that leave Europeans and North Americans gasping for air.

A few photos of myself with my cousin and boyfriend and some great sunsets from my grandma's apartment and the plane right back home.

I always remove my photos from my server after x amount of time. Especially since I wasn't expecting this topic to resurface :P
