With an altitude that is knockout heights, there is nowhere in South America as charming and friendly as Peru. Peru is as complex as its most intricate weavings. Festivals mix ancient pageantry with stomping brass bands. The urban vanguard beams with artistry and innovation. Trails mark the way from dense jungle to glacial peaks and I can’t think of a nicer culture than the people of Cusco. It is a place of smiles and the happy energy is tangible. Everyone needs to make Peru a high priority on their bucket-list. The view alone of Machu Picchu is worth every. single. penny. It is a feeling more than a view. A energy more than a destination. There is a reason it is a wonder of the world.
