Photo Friday: Quiet

Day 158 – December 27, 2011

Quiet” is the theme from Photo Friday.

This week’s challenge had a higher degree of difficulty as Peru’s capital city, Lima, is rarely quiet.

So I delved into the archives from our December 2011 to Cusco, the Sacred Valley, Machu Picchu for some peace and quiet.

On the last day of our wonderful trip, we visited the ruins of Suqsaywaman.

In one area of the site, visitors can climb up a small hill and look ut over the scenery. Because it is such an open space, all voices from the grassy floor below are carried away by the wind leaving you above the people in near silence.
