la garganta del diablo: cerro de pasco, the second highest real city in the world (70,000 inhabitants) sits on top of an andean plateau at 4330 m.a.s.l. it is an important mining center after silver was discovered there already in 1630. if the miners keep extending the big mouth in the city center which already spans around 3 km, it might eat the whole city one day... 😬

the platonian idea of a mountain: jirishanca. being one of the hardest 6000m mountains of the andes it was first climbed by the austrians 🇦🇹 toni egger and siegfried jungmair in 1957 - however from a different route than the one depicted here. this is the south east face and it was reportedly first climbed by a japanese team in 1973 in an attempt full of drama ❄️ that took them 49(!) days until finally succeeding 🏆

das weiße band: like a white ribbon the road between yungay and vaqueria winds up over a pass higher than 4700 meters in the cordillera blanca, a part of the peruvian andes. i could sit there for hours and just watch the lagunas de llanganuco. well in fact, i did.
all that is easily reachable from the mountain town of huaraz. if you need a place to stay there, don’t look further than cozy amelita boutique hotel. amelia and her coworkers will make you feel like home. thanks for a great stay! muchos besos!

reflections in the bean: good night, chicago. 
the cloud gate, nicknamed bean was established from 2004-06 according to plans from artist sir anish kapoor. 168 stainless steel plates were welded together and polished to make all seems disappear and generate an amazing mirror experience. the bean weighs about 100 tons and fast became one of the most iconic items of chicago.

feeling ‘la grandeza’ on plaza de españa in sevilla. if you haven’t been there, but it looks somehow familiar... that location has been used in several movies 🎥 including a ‘star wars’ episode, ‘lawrence of arabia’, and ‘the dictator’.

love it or loathe it: the north-eastern side of amazing sagrada familia, barcelona’s unfinished church. the unique style and the construction side give it a vibe as if lords of the ring was transferred to post-modern times...
