    I've never been happier for this camera's relatively small, compact form. It was on a backpack chest strap 100% of the time I was hiking and walking around towns, meaning I was able to grab and shoot very easily. Everyone else brought either cheap compacts or a big DSLR and suffered for it one way or another. At any rate, here are some of the jpg's I liked the best.

    Dinner after dusk, Cusco. You'd never know it was dark out.

    such colour ... light ...

    I did the Inca Trail in 1996 and don't have a single photo to show for it any more :frown:

    I only vaguely remember Bar Kamikaze in Cusco, thanks to Pisco Sour, but I still have a beautiful Alpaca blanket I bought in San Blas

    Superb. You have captured the spirit of the place. I have seen many pictures of the place before but never of this quality.

    All are great, but the Temple of the Sun shot is just complete money. Life magazine sort of stuff.

    Salkantay wide. The panoramic setting on the x100 really is pretty incredible.

    They are all very good, but my favorite is temple of the Sun. The child's outfit is perfect. Followed closely by your daughter and her Llama and More of MP.

    That tears it. Everybody is talking about Peru. There's also a Peru thread on mu-43. I haven't been back there in a couple of years. I have nothing better to do next week. Why not? Any decent flea markets to shop for legacy glass?

    Brilliant travelogue, thanks so much for sharing these pics. I like the idea of attaching the camera to the chest strap of the rucksack - I bet all the DSLR crew were green with envy!
