In 2011 I traveled around Peru. There was such a variety in buildings, from simple shacks made from mud, straw, or even reeds, to incredibly elaborate mansions! Machu Picchu showcased durable rock foundations nestled along a mountaintop, and Lima was a bustling city with new construction filling in spaces to span hundreds of years of architecture. Peru features a lot of mountainous landscapes with mist and fantastical cloud cover. The landscape was full of lush greenery and vibrant flowers during my visit.
