We travelled to Cusco on December 31, 2013. We got to celebrate the beginning of 2014 in style in the town square. There was lots of people, singing, dancing, fireworks, laughing, and beer. Beer everywhere. You couldn’t turn around without seeing someone selling beers or hearing a vendor  calling out “CERVAZA”. This was also where we set off on our trip up to Machu Picchu.

It is Easy Being Green! (WPC)

Hey, so I’m enjoying these weekly photo challenges. So here’s a bonus post in between my Peru adventures recap.

I was spoilt for choice this week, as I live in a city and country that has greenery everywhere. New Zealand is one of the lucky countries where green is easy to come by.

Sidenote: If you’re interested in seeing more about New Zealand, have a look through some old posts where I’ve got lots more pictures about them. Tongariro CrossingTop 5 of Wellington CityWalking around WellingtonWhat else to do in WellingtonFamily and Life.

Back to my entry. This picture is from Pollard Park , Blenheim. Somewhere I frequently visited when visiting my grandparents for Christmas.

The park is beautiful, full of greenery, creeks and ponds, gardens…I’ve always loved it. A few years back, we saw this new addition, supporting the 5 + a Day Campaign. Basically encouraging New Zealanders to stay healthy by eating more than 5 fruits or veges everyday.

I thought this picture was a perfect fit for the challenge, as it can take the meaning of green from the literal colour, nature, and being healthy!

There you have it, It IS Easy Being Green!
