The Inca

The Inca
Not an Inca obviously but a Peruvian lady posing in front of some original Inca stonework in Cusco.

There are people like this all around the lanes and alleys of the old part of the city, posing and asking for a dollar for a picture. I had very mixed feeling about whether I should be taking their pictures but in this one instance I couldn't resist so took I took a single picture and tipped her $5. Right or wrong I don't know but the scene somehow summed up my experience of Peru.
