Machu Picchu is the ancient city of the Inca of Peru,almost 8,000 ft. above sea level, on a mountain ridge above the Urubamba Valley in Peru--it is also called the "Lost City"--and one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. The city sits in a saddle between two mountains, with a commanding view down two valleys and a nearly impassable mountain at its back. Most pictures of the site are from the top of one of the mountains, looking down into the city--I wanted to do something different here, and was fortunate enough the find a photo of the site spread out lengthwise--I like the different viewpoint. The two people in the front are wearing hand-woven clothes of alpaca wool, decorated in the vivid colors and style of Peruvian folk art. The lady holds a spindle, used to spin the wool into thread. The man plays upon a Peruvian mountain flute. The alpaca has his ears pierced and threaded with the unique colors of the clan of people who are his owners. The flowers--snapdragon, wild begonia and bird-of-paradise, are native to the area.
