Monday Moment: Potato Ladies, Near Colca Canyon, Peru

Potato Ladies, Colca Canyon

Sitting in the square of the small town Cabanaconde, we waited for the start of our Colca Canyon trek. It was a quiet, hot day and we longed to get started so we could reach the much cooler bottom of the canyon.

Across the way a potato market was underway. Traditionally dressed women sold their potatoes and then loaded them into all manner of vehicles.

The woman on the right is carrying a baby in the red patterned bundle on her back. I have no idea how they tie the fabric so that the baby doesn’t fall!
