Peru Journey sights

While we were trying to contact different church leaders we saw some fascinating sights.

This man was driving a small group of cows down the road.
This man was simply traveling down the road

During market day, there were a number of booths that offered a variety of fast foods.

This man was enjoying fried seafood.
We were needing some veggies for supper and this lady provided some wonderful fresh carrots and broccoli.

These girls had just enjoyed an ice cream cone when we found them.

This picture overlooks the town of San Roque de Huarmita.  It gives you a hint of the majestic beauty in the area.
The Andes Mountain range runs north and south through the middle of Peru.  At this point there are two distinct mountain ranges with a valley in between.  The valley is the Cuna Valley.  On this trip I learned the official altitude was 12,600 ft.  Most of the people are descendants of the pre-Incan culture called Huanca.  From what I have heard, they were never really conquered by the Incas.

Revelation 7
9 After this I looked, and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands. 10 And they cried out in a loud voice:
   “Salvation belongs to our God,
who sits on the throne,
and to the Lamb.”
