Photographer's Note

A little corner of the Andes
This is just a small, picturesque corner of the small picturesque city of Huancavelica. 35,000 inhabitants, capital of the department of the same name, one of the most remote in Peru and not very well connected to the rest of the country. Easiest way to get there is with the "macho train" which leaves from Huancayo and covers the 120 km distance in 6 hours, a
spectacular ride (will post pictures of it later)
The city is small, pretty, colourful and there are abosulutely no tourists!
A true gem.
