International Penpals and Friends from around the World


A vintage postcard from Peru, showing two Peruvian men tilling the soil in a field with a foot plow. The foot plow has been one of the most important tools used for farming going back to ancient times in Peru. The foot plow, also known as a chaquitaclla, is comprised of a long stick with a curved tip made from stone or metal, which is used to dig a furrow out of the soil. On the back of the postcard, a description of the postcard's subject is written in both English and Spanish. The English description of the postcard says Peasants tilling the soil as in the Inca times, centuries ago, and the Spanish text says Chaquitaclla. Arado Incaico.
