On any trip to Cuzco, one of the most fun things to do on a Sunday morning is to hire a taxi or take the local bus to the picturesque Andean village of Pisac to visit their weekly farmer's market. Villagers come from miles around to sell their products - fruits, vegetables, cheeses, spices, handmade alpaca goods - or barter with the other villagers for the things they want or need. This little girl looked like she was tired of shopping and ready for a nap, although I got the sense that her mom was just getting started at the market. Don't miss a visit to the Sunday Pisac farmer's market if you find yourself in Cuzco - it's a great place to experience what life would be like as a Peruvian farmer working hard to make a living in the midst of the beautiful Peruvian Andes.
