CNN / Reuters Peru's grand canyon lures with condors, culture - October 23, 2001: "The entire canyon, whose name means 'granary' or 'depositary' in the native Quechua language, is packed with Inca lore and indigenous traditions that also attract tourists. The canyon is home to some 14 tiny, isolated villages -- some of which boast ornate, Baroque churches -- 138 species of birds, and 300 kinds of plants. It also houses extensive farming terraces predating the Inca empire where locals tend potato, corn, bean and wheat fields." One of my favorite spots in Peru. It's breath-taking.
