Having left the rainforest, this is a scene from Pisac, at the opposite end of the Sacred Valley from Macchu Pichu. This is about 12,000 feet (around 3,000+ meters), and thought to have been the administrative center of the Inca Empire. One of the things that constantly amazed me in Peru how, in an essentially very dry climate (West of the Andes), life clings to every opening it can find.
