GalleryPeru In 2012, I had the opportunity to spend a month in Peru, and so I took full advantage of it, driving and flying to as many places as I could reasonably reach. I spend time in Lima, the jungle, the Sacred Valley, Cuzco, and Lake Titicaca, and was bowled over not only by the natural beauty of the country but by wonders of ancient Incan architecture which seemed, in so many ways, far more advanced than architecture in the modern world. Though the Spanish Empire did its best to erase evidence of its inferiority in culture, architecture, design, science, and the arts (in all but murder and militarism, it seems), the remains of Incan roads, walls, and cities make clear the difference between Incan civilization and Spanish barbarism. Over the course of my visit, I took thousands of photos. These are some of my favorites.
