Peru.  Land of so many contrasts.  Desert coast land, tall snow-capped mountains, humid rain forest and broad rivers.  Land of the Inca.  We explored Lima.  Then the coastal desert to see the Nazca Lines, the cities of Ica and Pisco, the ruins of the ancient sun temple of Pachacamac.  Then we head inland to the Andes and Cusco, a village that observes the old Inca way, Willoq, and the old temple of Ollantaytambo.  The high point was visiting Machu Picchu, which was beyond belief.  Finally, we ventured to Iquitos, and a tour of the Amazon and its two feeding rivers, the Ucayali and the Maranon.  We had a wonderful time on this trip...
