The rich culture of Peru is intertwined with its past and present. Archaeological ruins that date as far back as pre-Inca civilizations match the vibrancy of traditional clothing and local celebrations, creating a unique environment for travelers to experience the country’s culture. This week’s photo takes us to the streets of Cusco where men dressed in festive costumes reflect the country’s Andean culture.
