I live in Bel Air and last summer I took a trip to Peru, where I visited Machu Picchu, truly one of the wonders of the world. I took a picture of these two Peruvian Native Indian girls at a large outdoor market in Pisac. This town is located in the Sacred Valley on the way to Machu Picchu. The bright colors of the hand-woven material are very typical of the clothing worn by women in this area. The Baltimore Sun welcomes submissions for "My Best Shot." Photos should have been taken within the past year and be accompanied by a description of when and where you took the picture and your name, address and phone number.

Awesome Machu Picchu A MEMORABLE PLACE By Doris Malin SPECIAL TO THE SUN Machu Picchu, the lost city of the Incas, proved a memorable trip for my 13-year-old-grandson, Justin, and me. The mystery of this Incan phenomenon had always intrigued me, and Justin had studied Machu Picchu in his social studies class. Sharing this adventure created a bond between us. Getting there was an adventure in itself. We flew to Lima, Peru, and then to Cuzco. Cuzco was the central city of the Incas before they climbed the heights of the Andes to settle in Machu Picchu.

A Memorable Place City of the Incas rises from the clouds By Brian Andrews SPECIAL TO THE SUN At 5 o'clock on a dark, chilly morning in the Peruvian Andes, I woke to a symphony of raindrops on my tent. My tour group had completed a 25-mile, four-day trek through the mountains, and another few miles this morning would find us at journey's end -- Machu Picchu -- the legendary city of the Incas that I had aspired to see my entire life. I threw on my poncho and stumbled out into the darkness.

Call Charles Lamb's record a streak of luck. As racing editor for the now-deceased Baltimore News American, Lamb correctly predicted in print the winning horses in all 10 races in a single day at Delaware Park.The "streak" came to pass on July 28, 1974, and it's never been beaten, at least not according to the Guiness Book of World Records, which lists Lamb as "Topmost Tipster."Not only did Lamb's published picks match every winner on the 10-race card in Wilmington that day, he also correctly predicted all three exactas and both triples.

The beauty of travel is more than the experience; it's also the memories.P We shape our recollections by telling stories, writing postcards or letters and sharing photographs.P In 2007, hundreds of readers shared their Best Shots from their journeys around the globe: from Peru to Antarctica, New England to Mexico, and destinations in between.P Through their stories, we jumped off a dock; we cheered at a bullfight; we sailed on a ship; we marveled at a crab -- we traveled far from where we are.P Here are some of our memories of the Best Shots of 2007.
