Photographer's Note

Taken outside Ollantaytambo the site of a once massive fortress, one of the few places where the Spanish lost a major battle during their conquest. Below the ruins is the village of Ollantaytambo built on traditional Inca foundations. There is also beautiful terracing leading up the slopes to the fortress ruins.
This child looked so happy just relaxing whilst being carried on her moms back. Her mom was selling bags of coca leaves which are brewed to coca tea to help with altitude sickness.

Scanned from neg.
