Peru is a land of ancient history, culture, diverse landscapes, wildlife, and rich history. This interesting region of the world has its own rich culture where some people still live on the floating grass islands and in tree houses. People still mine salt in the way of the Incas. Married women wear straw hats, and single women wear knitted caps. Peru has the highest sand, Dune and the deepest canyon in the world, Cotahuasi Canyon. The Peruvian population is multiethnic, including Amerindians, Europeans, Africans, and Asians. This mixture of cultural traditions has resulted in a wide diversity of expressions in fields such as art, cuisine, literature, and music. Peru grows more than 55 varieties of corn and 3,000 varieties of potatoes.
