Photographer's Note

We worked closely with Julio Zuniga, the owner of the Majes River Valley Lodge, who is described in more detail in one of my previous posts, while we were in Aplao. He is very interested in the local ancient religions and cultures, and was very eager to share them with us. He took us to a hillside shortly outside of Aplao that had been used as a burial ground for hundreds and hundreds of years, supposedly dating from pre-Inca civilizations to the early 1900's. Aplao is in a very active seismic zone, and so over times many long-buried skeletons have resurfaced on this hillside, where they have been exposed to the general populace of the world. Walking amid the remains of a long-gone civilization was a surreal experience indeed.
