When travelling I enjoy taking quick photos of people, colors, patterns, structures etc. I see on my way.
When beeing in Puno the Puno Week were going on. That meant a lot of colors, traditional costumes and dances.

In the highlands the women wear sandals made out of tires from the car or trucks. I remember I bought a pair some years ago, but they were too hard for me to wear. This woman had put some colorful bands on the sandals. It is the first time I have ever seen.
In Barranco in Lima I enjoy walking as I often see so many beautiful colors put together in a way, that we would never do in Denmark. Here is a window/wall of a backpackers place near the beach.
A snapshot of a man with his dog in the center of Lima, called Tacna.
My husband told me he often used to see this man walking with his dog, also many years ago. I usually do not like when people dress up there pets like this, but there is something unusual about this man and his dog. I think there is a special connecting between them.
This is also from Tacna.
In this neighborhood a lot of print companies is located. Perhaps this woman is carrying the leftovers of the printers cutting of the side of the paper.
When beeing in Lima the celebration of Senor de los Milagros was going on. The color purple is the main color for this. Many days parades were beeing held in the streets of Lima, mostly in Tacna, but also in the small areas of each neighborhood. People were carrying big banners of Senor de los Milagros and big candles were beeing lit. I like these religious candles a lot and I always try to have as many with me home.
We went to Huancayo for a weekend and there we went out to small villages to visit craftsman. Everywere we go the local people were trying to sell sweets, crackers or something to drink. This old woman in front of a weavers studio is so beautiful. She were selling a homemade juice. 
On Sunday the local market is beeing held in Huancayo. Everywhere in Peru in the highlands the local people wear there traditional clothes. I fell in love with the skirts, known as "polera".
A Sunday in Lima a celebration were happening. It seamed like people were wearing clothes from the different kinds of region of Peru, from the Amazon to the coast to the many different villages in the highlands. There were music and dancing in the streets. A young woman is wearing colorful pom pom'er in mica in her hair. These is of course in synthetic material, but I were lucky in Puno to find the real pom pom in lama wool and also one in beads.
A quick snapshot of a woman in the streets of Julliaca. We were sitting in the taxi on ouer way to the airport. Mostly these kind of snapshots turn out bad, but here I were lucky.
In the center of Lima close to Plaza de Armas we saw this young mother from the highlands walking with her two children.
