Salcedo, home of the Childrens´ Village/Orphanage

As part of some field reconnaissance with Project Suyana, I took a day detour to Salcedo to visit an orphange.  A few minutes´ ride from the Puno, the orphange was located in an idyllic valley.  There were also some ancient carvings (pinturas rupestres) from the Tiwanaku culture that I visited in the area, and the pictures of the orphanage and the carvings are below.

As Feb is the month of celebration in Peru, they obliged me to dance.

Given there were human bones laying around, this area was most likely a burial site.
