Seems like I have unconsciously gone into the habit of updating once a week..and I dont even notice that an entire week had passed...scary how time flies and I dont even feel I had done anything useful or productive during then!
Ok, lets cut down the chit-chat and do something useful now at least....
Got this card just recently, showing Local Handcrafts...since my request was, 'no Machu Picchu' please :) I have nothing against Machu Picchu, I actually love that place, but I already have few cards of it, and I really want to see something different coming from Peru, and this card just seems like a great choice!
The first picture shows 'retablos', which are very typical for Ayacucho - they are like little houses, the doors at the front open and there is scene (usually a nativity) inside.
As for Ayacucho, it is the capital city of the Huamanga Province in Peru and it is famous for its 33 churches where one stands for each year of Jesus's life
