Six best places to visit in Peru

I want to travel to Peru. Who wants to go with me???

Six best places to visit in Peru

Machu Pichu: Machu Picchu is South America's most popular tourist attraction, and was recently designated one of the world's new seven wonders. One's journey to Machu Picchu starts in the former seat of the Incan Empire, Cusco, with its historical buildings, before heading through the geographically and archeologically rich Sacred Valley.

Lake Titicaca: The world's highest navigable lake at 3810 meters, and one of the largest at 10,000 kilometers in volume, its sapphire-blue waters are known as the birthplace of the Incan gods, and home to pre-Incan civilizations, such as the Aymaras living on the man-made Uros Islets, that have changed little over the millenniums.

Nasca Lines: It was lost to the world until it surprised pilots in 1921 flying over this flat and desolate region of southern Peru. They looked down and saw lines and carvings extending as wide as 65 kilometers, featuring such forms as a monkey, a spider, a pelican, hummingbirds, a whale, a dog, and perhaps even an astronaut - or space alien. Archeologists are still debating the what, how, and why of these fascinating tokens of a lost civilization.

Arequipa and the Colca Canyon: Arequipa and the Colca Canyon represent the urban and rural Southern Peru at its most intoxicating. Arequipa, is the "white city," so named because so much of its extensive and exquisite architecture has been carved out of ashen volcanic rock. The pristine Colca Canyon offers opportunities for whitewater rafting, rock climbing, hiking, encounters with communities unchanged by colonization, and even dinosaur tracks.

Huaraz: Perched at 3,028 meters, Huaraz has always been a Mecca and magnet for rogue adventurers ready to risk everything scaling a rock or a glacier. Forget about Huaraz as a city, still barely recovered from a devastating earthquake over thirty years ago. This area, made famous by the film Touching the Void, also offers some of the greatest opportunities for mountain biking, rafting, kayaking, bird-watching, paragliding, skiing and spectacular sightseeing.

Iquitos: For many, Iquitos is gateway to Paradise. From monkeys to macaws, herons to hawks, and turtles to toucans, flora and fauna overwhelm the visitor. Chartered boats provide the opportunity to see many of these creatures, as well as the eye-opening foliage and flowers which serves as their home. Iquitos is home to the Pacaya-Samiria National Reserve, home to 100 species of mammals, 500 species of birds, and 250 species of fish. There are also local museums and opportunities for shopping.

How to brand yourself

Welcome to the new age of network marketing. If you are like me, you're trying to find a way to bring in an income. The traditional ways of marketing and doing business are a thing of the past. Now we have an amazing opportunity to start recruiting more people for your business along with the amazing ability to connect with thousands through social networking.

Let's face it Corporate America doesn't provide stability for its employees. The stability you get in your career comes from you. Always remember you are the only one who truly appreciates your talents, skills and hard work.

With the economy being in a state of emergency and so many people unemployed, people are struggling to survive and pay their bills. Our nations economic system is in great peril and many of our citizens just do not have the funds to meet the bare requirements to live in a productive society. The internet can fill the gap, step in, and take a role in your finances. Many people like you and me are turning to the internet to find hope.

A man by the name of Mike Dillard came up with a concept called branding yourself, this remarkable concept is producing millionaires all over the world! When you brand yourself, you become the product!

Websites like Youtube, Myspace, Facebook, Twitter, blogging, etc... are utilized for this sole purpose. If you're trying to sell a service, or in a home based business, social networking sites are big on branding.




I want to take this opportunity and let everyone know I'm in several different MLM businesses. I'm always looking for new people to help build OUR DREAM TEAM. Stay tuned for more details.

I am a real person looking for simple solutions for everyday issues. I'm currently searching for experts to add to my networks. I'm searching for help in the following ares: nutrition, health and wellness, anti aging procedures, skin care products and services.

I'm open to ANY suggestions!!!!!

Thanks for your time :) Have a great night!!!
Be Blessed, Melanie
