Andean High Mountain life

1 andes an DSCN1696

When we drive north from Auckland, we drive past a field full of Alpaca’s. They seem happy enough in the green paddock. But seeing their family roaming around in the Andes is something else. They fit in. They are happy. And so cute! They belong, as do the condors, the suri (a type of ostrich), the cacti, the pre-Inca historical forts of Tastil and colonial villages.

As does apparently “el condor pasa”, performed live, or suddenly being blasted through some speakers we didn’t even know existed for breakfast, lunch and dinner..
