Pisaq, Cusco – Perú -
I met those two little girls from a little village near the ruins of Pisaq, close to Cusco.
At the beginning they were a bit shy and they didn’t seem very keen to be photographed.
But I gained their trust after chatting a little bit.. and I managed to take a few pictures of them.

    This is a classic! Beautiful colors! Beautiful faces!
    It’s hard for me to imagine a village in 2008 without
    electricity or running water. Wonder how many people
    live there? and what keeps them there? Interesting
    tidbit of information.
