A Peruvian Woman rests on a street corner in the shade in Arequipa, high up in the Mountains surrounding the Colca Canyon. She wears the traditional hat and costume of women in her village from hundreds of years ago, yet a modern day three-wheeled taxi with the "Batman insignia" gives you a clue of what era it is.
Location: Arequipa outside of Colca Canyon, Peru
