The Tradition of Cusco

I love how the traditional people in Cusco, Peru kept their culture alive. I captured this moment while exploring the sacred valley of the Inca. These traditional dresses are very important for Cusco because it tells the story of their fascinating history and culture. These clothing play an important role; they add color and life to each celebration and open a window to the ways of the past that you will want to know more and dig deeper into their world.
