At the Top of the Inca Trail
I did the four day Inca trail trek in late June 2013. Here I am on day two, at the top of the highest pass, Warmiwanuska, at 4,215 meters (13,828 feet). It is also known as Dead Woman's pass. Getting here was well worth the effort as the view was fantastic.
Faro La Marina (Marina Lighthouse) was originally Punta Coles Lighthouse, disassembled and rebuilt in 1973. It has become Peru's best known and most visited lighthouse. Located in Parque el Faro (Lighthouse Park) on the seaside in Miraflores, a suburb of Lima, Peru.
I am standing in the bell tower of the Church of Santa Domingo in Lima, Peru, looking out over Plaza de Armas (the main square) and the Cathedral of Lima (Roman Catholic), which was completed in 1622. The Cathedral has 14 side chapels. This plaza is the heart of the old city. I was here in early July 2013.

A grand time was had by all. And then we all enjoyed a marvelous supper. Sign language and a few spanish words go a long way. ... Hide full submission
Misti is an active volcano near the city of Arequipa, Peru. Elevation 5,822m. It last erupted in 1985. I was here June 2013. As we drove to the Colca canyon we could see the volcano most of the time. A beautiful sight.
While in Cuba in May 2013 I was fortunate to get to Santa Clara and to the square where the Che Guevara Mausoleum is. He was at Castro's side during the 1959 revolution. I had also visited Che's and Fidel's hideaway in the Sierra Maestra mountains, from where they attempted a coup in 1956. Wherever you go in Cuba, Che's photo is there.
