The only thing unremarkable from this short film is its matter-of-fact title. Cole Graham may only have spent 'a few weeks in Peru' but he captured the essence of a country which all of us at SA Expeditions hold extremely dear.
Of course he includes the big name places - Lima, Cusco, Machu Picchu, the floating villages on Lake Titicaca - but more importantly he preserves the sights and sounds of everyday Peru. The market sellers and the labourers; the alpacas and the cows; the Urubamba River in the rainy season and the weavers of the Andes. The soundtrack is great, the editing is excellent and the message is overwhelmingly clear.
