I'm heading to Lima and from there to Chile, Argentina, Brazil and Bolivia. Then Back to Peru. How comfortable should I feel using My Canon 5D? Any precautions? Should I make it look like a junky camera? Also, my lenses dont look inexpensive; 16-35, 70-200, and 50mm. The 50 looks them most basic. Let me know your thoughts.

I'm a 23 year old Australian Optometrist who will have been doing volunteer optometry work in Peru before the 17th. I am then going to do my travelling in Peru, namely Machu Picchu, Lake Titicaca and the Nazca lines from the 17th-29th. I would love a travelling companion for that time if anyone is interested? Travelling alone as a female in South America looks a bit daunting!

Hi Emily,

You didn’t put a month with your dates 17th-29th? If its June to Sept I maybe able to travel with you around those areas I know what you mean about a female traveling alone!
