Peru by Chaunte Vaughn

I recently returned from a trip to Peru with Nuna Journeys of the Spirit. It was an unexpected expedition that included alpacas, moon ceremonies, sun ceremonies, despachos, empanadas, Machu Picchu, and an Incan civilization in the clouds. I'll share an excerpt from my journal. 

"That night we slept in the homes of the villagers. The father of our house, named Milton, led Addie and I through the foggy dark to his stone and straw hut to a bed of straw and Alpaca furs. His wife slept next to us while he and his 3 children stayed on the other side of the room. Guinea pigs roamed in the corner, a puppy slept curled by the door, and a black cat made an appearance at some point. Animal hides hung from the wood rafters, pots and pans were stacked into stone shelves. Smoke from the cooking fire hovered in the air above me."

I recently saw The Master. Its on Netflix watch instantly, can't get away:) Anyway- the color treatment in that movie absolutely blew me away. I was so impressed that I researched and found it was a company called "Color", go figure. The rich 40's palette with blue shadows and golden highlights- every detail was perfect. There is a scene where the main character is taking portraits in a department store with hot lights.......I mean come on.....its incredible. You have to at least see that scene.
