Can Tho

Vietnam

Can Tho is a small village in the southern part of the Mekong Delta region of Vietnam. Perhaps the BEST floating market that I’ve visited. The large boats like the one pictured, actually travel from small villages (sometimes days away) and stay until all of their goods are sold.

“The New Machu Picchu”

Kuelap Fortress

Northern Peru

A secret site held by the local Chachapoyans for many years, it’s still a hidden treasure.

They were found/discovered in 1843.

The entire area had been forgotten for quite some time.

Abandoned after the Incas conquered the Chachapoyas before the Spanish arrived. 

The Kuelap ruins are actually older than Macchu Picchu.
