“Hi, can you take a photo?”
The Peruvian girl in her teens asked in Spanish.
“Sure,” I replied.
I stretched out my hands, ready to receive her camera but she stood next to me.
“Oh,” I realized then that she wanted to take a photo with me.
Her friends took turn to stand beside me, posing for photos.
I felt like a Korean superstar at that moment with my legion of giggling teenage fangirls surrounding me. I looked around – I was the only Asian there. Scratch that, I could be the only non-Peruvian there at the Ahuashiyacu Waterfall.
