When you think of South America, the first thing that comes to you is Machu Picchu (or favelas), but as I get deeper into my trip I’m convinced that Machu Picchu is popular for only one reason: it’s entire essence can be captured in one easily digestible photograph. It’s popular because of marketing. Pompeii is a far more interesting ruin but it’s a complex site that doesn’t have that money photograph.
You’ve probably never heard of Iguazu Falls, but it’s the Niagra Falls of South America. Waterfalls are waterfalls, but this beats stone ruins any day.
I uploaded a bunch of other photos this month.
