Peru

As I watch the rail line snake its way high into the Andes, I cannot help but be captivated by Peru’s awe-inspiring landscape and its extraordinary natural beauty. It is, however, the children that I believe are the greatest treasure of this land. Their beaming faces seem to greet my family wherever we go: from the shores of Amazon tributaries to the rugged Peruvian highlands. In their shining eyes, I see the humble tradition of the Incas, the influence of the Conquistadors and the desire to preserve their people's heritage through wondrous creations and time-honored crafts. As they grow to become the future of this country, they carry the legacy of the past with them.
