Xanadu Farm Alpacas Visits Peru in November 2014
We just returned from Peru and a truly wonderful experience in the altiplano,
visiting the Casa Chapi Orphanage and at Machu Piccu.
Thanks so much to Amanda, Cheryl, Arturo and Mike
for making this one of our most memorable experiences.
Here are a few photos.
