PICTURES Cusco , Peru: Page THREE


After I took this picture, I grabbed this sweet little lady and gave her a big hug. As for the lama, I gave him/her a big hug, too!


This is the market in Cusco, Peru, where people sell their home grown produce, and arts and crafts. I'll post a little at a time many more pictures of this market.

All Peruvian women carry their babies or groceries in slings around their backs.
Peru: Women still use slings as a primary means of carrying their babies

I always spatter my pictures with the URL of one of my websites, because there are some webmasters who take pictures and claim them as their own. I also do it to advertise this particular website.

On another note, I hope you kids are watching MSNBC, where you will always find the TRUTH about what is going on in Wisconsin. Fox News isn't telling it as it is, because they are for the wealthy only.

Each day that passes, I fail to understand more and more why so many working middle class voted the GOP in. I'm almost sure that they now regret it. The GOP is ONLY looking for the best interest of the RICH. The Democrat Party is for the poor and working middle class. Can't you see that the GOP is trying to completely obliterate the middle class? Open you eyes and see what's going on. Wisconsin's Republican Governor Scott Walker scares me to death!

Although, this Youtube video wasn't taken in Peru, you can get an idea as to how beautiful the music is. [info]watch_and_see once heard the music at a fair, and liked it so much that she bought a cd.

llama hugs...
First time I ever hugged a llama, and he/she loved it just as much as I did.

The Democratic Party is just as evil as the Republicans, they are just more underhanded about it and push their stuff through in earmarks so people don't notice it. Neither of our two party system is worth a damn, and we need to throw them ALL out of power. The Democrats are not about the "working people", they say they are, but what they do in office shows a completely different agenda, I do not trust Democrats nor Republicans, and this country is the cesspool it is now because of BOTH of those parties.

I have to agree with you, astrixas: "Neither of our two party system is worth a damn, and we need to throw them ALL out of power." The Dem's no longer represent the working class. Unfortunately, I suspect anyone that I would actually like to see as President is too sane to want to run. I am registered as an Independent and that's how I vote ... independently. I have voted for people from both parties and even the random in-between obscure ones. I am drawn to the most moderate of either party. Although I love people far left and right of me, I would not want them in office.

Perhaps you're right, but I have to believe in one of them, and if both are evil, I'll choose Democrats, because in my mind, I still believe many are for the middle class people.

*blush* You mentioned my name! I am flattered. I must mention that I have also seen Agua Clara on the corner in Manhattan. They get around! ha ha

In addition to the flute, I love the Peruvian Box (drum), too. My musical tastes are all over the board, but if it's played with pure intent, I am going to feel that ... and that is what so beautiful about this. It is ancient and pure. Love it!

How cute that I got you to blush! heee

I also love all types of music, but this music is one of a kind, because as you said so perfectly, it is ancient and pure!

Geeeez when will you learn?
MSNBC is a pawn for the Obama White House because of the pinko's that infest the Liberal Media. Obama needs to try and fix his own problems and keep his mouth shut where State Rights are concerned.

NOW let me fill you in on a few facts. I KNOW this because I have three friends who ARE teachers in Wisconsin. OF THE THREE ONLY ONE IS A UNION MEMBER. Ok got that? All three have to pay dues to the Union fat cats because of the Union regulations. Is that fair?? The State has to pay 100% of the Insurance for the teachers and their famuilies as well as 100% of their retirement. The teachers pay NOTHING.

Now the State is over 3 billion in debt and in an effort to PREVENT from laying off ANY teachers they are pushing the new agreement that the teachers pay a small portion of their Insurance and Retirement as well as the Union paying a share of each. Thyat was ALL the teachers will keep their jobs, and still get the summer minths off to do whatever even working at Summer School; and getting additional pay if they so choose.

OH by the way. The mean salary for a public school teacher in Wisconsin is a bit over $80,000 a year. YOU DO NOT HEAR THAT ON MSNBC, DO YOU?? NOOOOOOOOOO! It would make the greedy union teachers look greedy as hell.

How about the Parents who are paying the taxes so these greedy assholes can march in protest for three days? What if the State fired their lying asses for saying they were sick when they were protesting? What if the Governor saide fuck it and just laid off about 45% of the teachers so he can balance the budget, what he was elected to do!

I(f you have a better solution send him an Email. In the mean time the Democrat legislators have all hauled ass to Illinois to keep from having to vote on legislation. IS that what they were elected to go? run and hide instead of doing their jobs?


As for Peru... I love the pics! Have you ever heard of a group of Peruvian Indians called "Andes Cosmos"? They are a band that play strings and flutes and drums and they are wonderful! The music is haunting and so peaceful! I have 7 of their CD's, they come to our State Fair each year. You need to look them up and listen to their Music.

AND quit with MSNBC they are lying to you thanks to George Sorros.

Re: Geeeez when will you learn?
Oh daddy, you'll never change my mind about Fox, the GOP, or the Tea Party.

When will you see that the GOP doesn't give a damn about the working middle class? They ONLY look for the best interest of the rich. Fox is the liar, liar, pants on fire!

I'm so happy you're enjoying my Peru pics! It is impossible for pictures to show the true breath-taking beauty of the place. Just wait until you see the pics of Machu Picchu!

Re: Geeeez when will you learn?
Well you will never change your mind about me then because I am part of the Tea Party and damn [proud of that fact. As for the middle class, I would not know about them because according to all the books I am considered upper part of the working lower class.

That is why I hate what MSNBC, Moveon.org and the rest of the George Sorros powered socialist organizations They are pushing class warfare just like they did in France, Russia and every other area where the socialist agenda has failed. LOOK AT THE NEWS, the mid east is on fire and its spreading to our country and its because of the Unions, the Democrats and the rest of the people who wanna destroy our Republic.

Re: Geeeez when will you learn?
In my mind, you are not the Tea Party, but a dear friend. I will never like the T-Party, just as you will never like Demo's.

Had we lived during the Civil War (you a Confederate - Me a Yankee), we would have still been friends.

Unions keep union members from becoming slave for employees.

Re: Geeeez when will you learn?
well its evident you are not familiar with the inner workings of the unions or the fat cats that run them. They were useful at one time but now they are just crooked!

If you ever had any dealings with them you would know.

Unions are an opiate for the masses who are too lazy to represent themselves.

And at one time I was a Democrat, but like Ronald Reagan, they left me as well. Jimmy Carter and his stupidity drove me away from the party.
He started the Department of Education with one purpose, to educate the Children of the US and prepare them for the 21st Century. America's children have never been dumber, and in turn those adults who have come up since.
He also started the Department of Energy with one purpose, wean the US off foreign oil and make the US self sufficient. We are in greater need of foreign oil now because he kissed the ass of the environmentalists and his son Obama has stopped all drilling and research in new fields.

You are right Ihat's the Democrats "now" because they are all cowards like the 14 democrat senators in Wisconsin who ran away instead of having to vote on legislation. They are serving the people really well just like all the teachers cheating the state by marching while they are supposed to be sick. I hope the Governor fires their sorry asses like Reagan did to the Air Traffic Controllers.

If I am not wrong Reagan was a hero of yours as well!

actually, not "All Peruvian women carry their babies or groceries in slings around their backs." that's a huge generalization.

I shouldn’t have said all Peruvian women, but instead – All the Peruvian women (I saw) carried their groceries or their baby in a sling.

My neighbor has about a dozen Illamas. Uses their wool for clothing/yarns. They delivered a baby illama last year that wasn't doing too well at birth so it was at vet hospital for almost a month. It's doing fine now.

The way I understood it, GOP was elected in because they promised to cut spending. Look how well that's turning out.

I was never too much into llamas, but after my trip to Peru, I now love them like crazy. I'll be posting more pictures of Peru with llamas, and I know you'll be as upset as I was to find out something about them!

Yes, and now we see their true colors. Just because they won the seats, they now feel they can do whatever they please with us the working class. God help us!

I'm reminded of the saying that goes something like, "The problem with politicians is that they forget they've been appointed not anointed."

Never heard of that saying but it is so true. And to think that not too long ago, I thought politicians were men and women of integrity. What joke!
