Weaver in Chinchero, Peru
 
Photograph of a Quecha weaver in the town of Chinchero, near the City of Cusco, Peru.  Note the house made out of adobe and stone with a thatched roof.  Perhaps surprisingly to some, the trees in the background are not native, but rather eucalyptus trees imported from Australia.  This image was taken in the 1960s and photographer Chuck Clark was one of the few Americans who visited Chinchero in that epoca.  Currently Chinchero has become a tourist attraction with the Peruvian government actually charging an admission fee for tourists to enter the upper part of the town where there is a church and ancient Inca ruins.
