12th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People
Welcoming Tourists

We were on a tour bus when we saw these Peruvian children standing on the road with the alpaca. It was common for them to charge money for pictures with themselves or with their pets. Our driver saw them and pulled over and let them get on the bus. The children brought their alpaca on the bus and went up and down the isles on the bus for people to see. This seemed common and I thought it to be very unusual for me and customary for them.
