Machu Picchu

Why Machu Picchu?

I chose to make a flyer about Machu Piccu because it is my goal to one day do a 6-8 day hike up to the site. I love nature and the outdoors and want to try backpacking. Machu Picchu is very beautiful but challenging. It would mean a lot to me if I got a chance to travel to Peru to explore the ruins.

Colors Of The Wind (From Pocahontas) by andrea.miranda

colors of the wind

Whenever I am in nature, I always sing and do the actions to this song. It describes me perfectly! When I go to Machu Picchu, I am going to sing with all the voices of the mountains and paint with al the colors of the wind.
