Flooding in Peru

Some of you will have read my blog of our trip to Peru.  As you will realise - unless living in a rather deep cave - there have been a lot of floods in the area recently.

Chris, the owner of the company which our leader (Ian Fraser) works for was leading a tour there at the time and managed to get his group on the last train out of Aguas Calientes to Cusco.  The following are some photos he took of the conditions there.  Apparently many people are living in tents (adobe houses do not last long when inundated by raging flood waters) and have lost all their crops.
