There have been many great photo opportunities in Peru. From the cute babies, to the vibrant textiles to the beautiful nature that seems to be everywhere you open your eyes to the wise-looking abuelas(os) as pictured above. There has only been one catch – sometimes you gotta pay up for a nice picture opportunity. When trying to take the above pic, the abuela told me I have to pay up 1 sol (about $0.40) in order to take her shot. So I paid up thinking I can take as many photos as my heart desired. But not so fast. One sole apparently only buys you three pics. So in this shot, you can see the abuela yelling at me for taking a fourth pic (hence her raising four fingers). Lesson learned: I have since limited my shots per sol to three and understood that even a warm, fuzzy cardigan-wearing abuela can drive a hard bargain.
