Andean girl in Colca Valley

Don’t touch my apple!

Sometimes, while traveling, you plan a lot how to get to do adventurous activities, go to new places and experience exciting things.

Some other times, you just jump into a colectivo (small shared vans that work as buses) and have the time of your life chatting to locals and people watching.

Up in the Colca Valley we took a colectivo going between two villages. The ride was full of ladies and kids who had gone to the main town to buy supplies. It was about 20 of us on a van that had probably 10 seats.

This girl was sitting down and protecting her apple from the bumpy ride.

Cute, isn’t she?
