p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Peru- #6. Step forward, then back


A few kind-hearted FMers are apparently somewhat "into" the llama drama , so I'm stretching it out a little. And (shame on me) I'm including a couple of non-animal shots to indicate context and the surrounding environment.
Today I'm backing up to Machu Picchu for one last look.

Hey Charlie, did anyone tell the Peruvians that they have to take better care of their ruins. Doesn't everyone get rained on without a roof on their house. And certainly a single llama can't do it all! It looks it manages the property AND gives tours!
I really like the second shot despite there not being a single (or married ) llama in sight.
One thing though, it is difficult to tell whether the structures are above, below or equal in height to the peaks....I do see the clouds appear to be in between.
And one last thing (sorry Mr. Jobs), did anyone check those tourists bags...I think it was a barber convention and that llama was in for a shearing.
Now back to your regularly scheduled programming.

Eric- thanks for your irreverent comments; life is too short to be polite and agreeable all the time .
Without an opposable thumb, the poor llama can't repair the timber and branches roofs. Plus, he's on grass all the time and doesn't give a ____ .
The reason it's hard to tell the relative height of Machu Picchu is because some of the surrounding peaks are above, some below, and some equal in height . (It took a lot of research to come to that conclusion .
This llama is so lazy about getting his hair cut that he waits until the local lady llamas complain about it. And, being females, you know they will.

Oh man!!! I want to go there sooooo bad!
We went to Takal about 10 years ago and that was really something, I don't believe it even comes close to Machu Picchu though.....
Thanks for sharing!

Well Charlie, you win the prize for most diverse geography (as in places visited) photographed during a singe lifetime. Machu Picchu is one special place. Add a llama, and you have magic.
