Lima, Cuzco, Machu Picchu

Peru is a multi-ethnic country, a melting pot that has created a variety of expressions in art, literature, and music. It was home to two of the great ancient civilizations, and while it now boasts the modern urban centers of Lima and Cusco, in many of the small villages the old ways have been preserved and are respected throughout the country. A trip to Peru is more than a visit; for many, the experience is life-changing.
