|Yin and yang finding out about|
life together. Lamb is a staple meat
and we saw many flocks along
During our trek through the Cordillera Blanca in Peru, we encountered farm animals in every valley. In the Cordillera Real in Bolivia, communities are deliniated by valleys and are often separated by glacial rivers. Trekking through the vast lands and up and over passes is just part of what a "campesito" does. It was quite inspiring (and humbling too), to witness the physical strength and determination of the people.
|Horses are a big part of life in the|
Andes. They are essential
for transportation and as pack
animals. Here they helped us
across a river.
|Donkeys are also integral to life in the Andes. They can|
carry up to 40 kilos (25 more than llamas). Such gentle
animals they are.
|Alpacas graze freely on grasses.|
