Since 1985 I have travelled to Bolivia 12 times. In 2017 I decided to see what Bolivia's neighbour Peru had to offer. I was not disappointed. After meeting Julio, a kindred spirit and fellow photographer. I was invited to Carnaval in Andahuaylas. I tend to be on the timid side and ultra cautious when photographing people. While at Carnaval a dancer struck up a conversation with me and before I knew it I was taking shots while group members sang, danced and played music.
I met Olga, a nurse, while photographing the annual cultural event known as the Niño de Praga. After returning from a night shift at the hospital Olga and her family introduced me to their weekly market where we ate roasted yuca, a delicious homemade yogurt made from the sweet lucuma fruit and freshly squeezed orange juice. Our refuge from the afternoon heat and activity was accompanied by live music. Back at her house, she told me a story about a local saint her brother found 10 years before.
A Peruvian woman packs her displays at the end of the day. Her journey to town was hard enough She started out on a hill side well over 14,00 feet. Now she will return home and sort what sold in the street and discard what didn't for the next day for another round of bargaining with tourist that have no idea how hard her life is which she takes in stride. She is a Peruvian Woman and mother. She is Latina.

Juan Sanchez is 85 and has made his rounds in the market for over 60 years. Juan is a bit slow, but never misses a sale.
His watermelon is know as the ripest in the market. Calling out to the people down the isles, or bring an order to his patrons. In his tray he carries 12 slices evenly cut at two soles a slice. This will bring him a fair amount before closing time during the summer season.
