The Living Colors of the Huaraz Market – A Photo Essay


Photo Essay of the Women of Huaraz, Peru

The marketplace in Huaraz was one of my favorite places. The people were friendly and the exotic sights, sounds and smells will remain imprinted in my memories for years to come. The market was mostly filled with women most of whom were indigenous. Some live and work in the surrounding  mountain farms, some live in the city proper but  all were dressed in their brightly colored traditional frocks, with layered thick quilted skirts, heavy stockings and tall felt hats. I enjoyed smiling at these women, whom all had a smile in return for me.

We hope you enjoy this photo essay.

Inspiration is everywhere.

Lainie Liberti is a recovering branding expert, who’s career once focused on creating campaigns for green - eco business, non-profits and conscious business. Dazzling clients with her high-energy designs for over 18 years, Lainie lent her artistic talents to businesses that matter.  But that was then.

In 2008, after the economy took a turn, Lainie decided to be the change (instead of a victim) and began the process of “lifestyle redesign,” a joint decision between both her and her 11-year-old son, Miro. They sold or gave away all of of their possessions in 2009 and began a life of travel, service, and exploration. Lainie and her son Miro began their open-ended adventure backpacking through Central and South America. They are slow traveling around the globe allowing inspiration to be their compass. The pair is most interested in exploring different cultures, contributing by serving, and connecting with humanity as ‘global citizens.’

Today Lainie considers herself a digital nomad who is living a location independent life. She and her son write and podcast their experiences from the road at Raising Miro on the Road of Life.
