Peru Travel Photo Gallery

I remember crossing the border from Bolivia to Peru and talking with Daniel about how we would only spend 3-4 weeks in Peru. Well, we were very wrong. From the Amazon jungle to hiking 5,000m high in the Andes, Peru had us busy and entertained! Here are some of our favorite pictures from our 10 weeks there featured in our very own Peru Travel Photo Gallery.
