The Life and Colors of Cusco

While exploring the streets of Cusco, Peru, I came across two women and their llama. They were weaving intricate and colorful textiles skillfully and with ease. The beauty and the culture behind the indigenous people of Cusco reveal a long history of tradition that continues to survive amidst a developing and changing nation.
