Map & Table of Contents

Summary: I flew from Belgium to Lima, then on to Cuzco from where I visited the Inca sites. Then I traveled over land to Lake Titicaca and on to La Paz in Bolivia. In Bolivia I went to Uyuni in the south, then back to La Paz and on to Lake Titicaca. Then I want back to Peru, returning to Lima via Arequipa and along the south coast. Finally I visited Atlanta during a long transit on the way home.

I enjoyed your photos, especially of Arbor de Piedra! How fragile it looks. Thanks for your tips on traveling to Machu Pichu on LonelyPlanet.com.

Ammmazing photos and exciting views!!! :)
I can't find the right words!

I bet in real life these views were much more breathtaking :) At some point I envy you - you had a chance to see all this beauty by your own eyes!
But the same time thank you very much for sharing this beauty with us :) This way it is also very nice ;)

Looking forward to seeing new pics and reading new reports ;)

It'll be 90% nature pics in the rest of the report. You ain't seen nothing yet :)

Well apart from some really wild desert llamas I saw penguins, condors, flamingos, pelicans, other birds, and sealions!

Excellent pictures! Very beautiful sceneries! As usual I prefer mountain pics before buildings. ;-) I especially like the green colours of the mountains and the blue colours of the lakes that you visited.

By the way, you didn't happen to see any wildlife? Apart from that creepy millipede I mean. (And lamas don't count as wild.) :-)
