Photography - Peru - a few more photos from Cusco - beauty - costume and Incas.

Lake Titicaca, Bolivia

After crossing the land border from Perù to Bolivia at Kasani, we arrived at Copacabana, a relaxed Bolivian village on the shores of Lake Titicaca. The village itself has a few interesting things to do, like beachbumming, visiting the Cathedral or climbing up the Calvario, the hill dominating the town – though beware, at an altitude of 4000 masl it is a more difficult climb than you’d think! 385 more words


Αταχουάλπα, ο τελευταίος βασιλιάς των Ίνκας

1533 μ.Χ. Ο Αταχουάλπα, ο τελευταίος βασιλιάς των Ίνκας, που δολοφονήθηκε με διαταγή του ισπανού κατακτητή του Περού, Φρανθίσκο Πιθάρο. (Γεν. 17/11/1502)

The Uros floating islands on Lake Titicaca were originally used as a defensive mechanism. 208 more words
