Peru, South America - June 2000


We spent more time in, and saw more of Peru than anywhere else on our South America trip.
That is why I have made seperate pages for the different regions we went to in Peru. Just click
the links to see the pictures.

Tambopata River, Puerto Maldonado (The Jungle)
Cusco
The Inca Trail
Machu Picchu and Aguas Calientes
Lake Titicaca

This shot was taken by Kiwi Angela at a restaurant high in the hills above Cusco. The rodent on my plate is a "Cuy" or guinea pig, the national dish of Peru. And yes, I did eat it!
Here is a link to a Sydney Morning Herald article about Peruvian guinea pigs
