Smiling Faces in Pisac, Sacred Valley, Peru

Today's smiling faces travel photo is of two cute children wearing traditional attire with big grins located in Pisac, a small town in Peru's sacred valley.

Pisac is a small town in Peru’s Sacred Valley, 35 km northeast of Cuzco.  In addition to the impressive Inca ruins perched above the town, the place comes alive on Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday when folks from around the valley arrive for the market.  Many wear traditional Inca clothing and are happy to pose for photos (for a suitable “propina”).  In fact, posing for tourist photos has become something of an industry.  These two gave me quite a smile – well worth the soles.
