While traveling to the Colca Canyon, I came across what our guide said are “wishes” that people had piled up on the roadside. Basically, a pile of stones carefully balanced on top of each other as if reaching the heavens asking for their wish to be fulfilled – this was a wish :)
Here are several wishes …
This reminded me of the wishes made in India. In India, many people make a wish and tie a red dupatta (scarf) around a tree trunk or branch, in a temple. And when that wish comes true, they come back to that same temple and untie any one scarf.
Threads of faith or steps of hope – it’s nice to see that people around the world find their ways to communicate with God.
So, in the colca canyon, overlooking the capturing terraces, I made a wish too – and here is my wish :)
