Does it get very cold?

They wear lots of clothes and use a lots of blankets at night. During the day it's cold but not unbearable. At night it gets below freezing. I spent 4 nights in different places up there and I needed everyone of those blankets. One place was 15,700 feet (4,800 meters) above sea level and it was like camping without a campfire even though I slept indoors.

I missed the photos of the wheat fields. Lovely shots TA.

Mark, Nice shots. I really like the first one.

I love the second one Mark, for the not so typical composition. Lovely shots, both of them.

I remember a few nights up in those mountains. Did you eat any guinea pig? I had some in the stew, along with lots of noodles. The Quechua people are very warm blooded - shake one's hand and you'll notice that. They also have hearts and lungs that are 1/3 larger than normal to make things easier up in the high altitudes. And the strangest language. Somewhere on my book shelf is the Quecha - spanish New Testament I picked up in Areiquipa when I was there.

Haven't eaten guinea pig yet, but hopefully I'll have my camera with me when I do and get a couple of good shots of that skinned rodent before I eat it. The nightly temperature was dropping just below freezing and the babies crawled around the cement floor of the church barefoot and a few of the adults and older children wore sandals without socks. As far as the language goes, I've heard it's similar to Chinese and there have been reports of Chinese tourists in Sucre, Bolivia that had a limited communication with the Quechua there. Although I personally can't verify the stories, they are somewhat circulated even here in Peru.
