Eucalyptus was brought from Australia to Ecuador and has spread into Peru. It is useful for roof beams and firewood, but there is also concern that it is taking the place of native species.

If you zoom in, you can see that people of Peru farm fields high up on the mountainside today as they did in Inca times. (These fields are more accessible than many!)

Thanks for your kind words, Wim, Tjeert, and Jacques, and especially, Jacques, for the honours.

I noticed this view as we were walking to breakfast. Then the clouds became solid. As all three of you know, ¨Take the picture when you have the chance¨!! I´m glad I took the time to take this when I had the opportunity, and I´m happy that you like it, too.
