About the Book
The book tells the tale of a journey all over Peru, discovering their history and their culture.
On a mountain trail high in the Andes lies the long lost Inca city of Machu Picchu (located 2,400 meters / 7,875 ft above sea level) - lost until 1911 when it was found by Hiram Bingham. This set also includes pictures from elsewhere in Peru including Cuzco, Lake Titicaca (the largest navigable lake above 7000ft) and the Nasca Lines (which featured in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull).
The trip included:
The Ballestas Islands
Paracas National Reserve
Abra La Raya
About the only place in Peru not visited within the fortnight (well it was just over a fortnight actually!) was Arequipa to see Condors, but we saw some at Machu Picchu anyway.
A number of the places visited were UNESCO World Heritage sites.
You can now also watch a short video from Peru on Vimeo! http://vimeo.com/3210094

I am a web developer working for a company that specialises in websites for government and enterprise clients. On my blog I publish articles on Web development, web design, and other topics such as tweaking the performance of games and movie reviews. I also have plenty of photographs on Flickr, and videos on Vimeo. I enjoy travelling and photographing what I see, so I end up with plenty of new material for books!
