Andean ladies sure are strong! While tourists like us are huffing and puffing due to the lack of oxygen at high altitudes, they trudge along, babies and all, onwards and upwards!
The mountain way of carrying babies is quite interesting. The little ones get wrapped in a cloth and then carried wherever they want to go on their mums backs.
You should get one of these: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Training-Mask-TM-01-Elevation/dp/B004GZ4MEU/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1351755432&sr=8-1
That way you’ll be ready to go back to the andes!

Wow! Colors, lighting, textures, subjects = Great portrait shot.
Thanks Maria! :D
