Amazon to the Andes: A Day in Peru (4K Video)

In the second installment of our Peru video series, we take you from sunrise on the Tambopata River in the Amazon Basin, to the Sacred Valley of the Incas, to Machu Picchu, Cusco, then across the Andes to witness the sun set and the moon rise over Lake Titicaca.

The video works fine on just about any computer, phone or tablet, but If you are one of the lucky ones who have a fast enough internet connection and a 4K monitor or TV set, click on gear icon and select 4K after you enlarge the video to full screen.

Flight over the Andes to Lake Titicaca (4k Video)

This is a 4K video I shot flying over the Peruvian Andes to Lake Titicaca, the highest navigable body of water in the world. It can be watched in the new 4K video format, four times the resolution of HDTV, but for those of you who lack the computer (or TV) and bandwidth to do that, it is also available in standard YouTube formats.

To watch in YouTube 4K video, maximize your screen with the control on the bottom right of the frame, click on the gear symbol and choose 4K. Warning: This is new and very quirky)

Sometimes you suffer from too much of a good thing, even the finest food.

Tell your friends you're going Morocco for two weeks and they'll likely lick their lips and wish they could be with you to enjoy the tasty pastilla, keftas, couscous and  tajines. So why,  halfway through our journey,  were we willing partners to a culinary insurrection.
