A visit to northern Peru -part four- Cajabamba


Cajabamba is a pretty town, nestling in some fine hills, perfect for painting. People there seem to do more or less what they like and the place has a pleasant, unhurried air. I could happily have spent a few more days here.

These two -above and below- seem to me to be among the finest of the trip. They're fluent and confident, and seem to me very much of the place they depict.
