Peru 2012

Some Photos of Peru

In January 2012 Dr. Kim Kitchens and I took off for a couple of weeks in Peru.  Among all the 50+ countries I've visited in the world, I think Peru is one of the best in terms of diversity and touristic interest.  It has everything from modern cities to ancient ruins to some of the most spectacular ecological areas on the earth.  This time we went south to the Nazca and Paracas area, then over to the Amazon, flying into Iquitos and going upriver for a few days of animal and bird watching in the jungle.  I present here a very few photos of the thousands (honest!) I took.  They are just some that I found interesting.  While they don't tell a story, they are fun to look at.  I've divided them into sections--see the area to the right.
