Feb 26, 2019 - Winding up our Peru Journey

We are coming to the end of our Peru odyssey. Today we pack for the trip to Lima, which will be a quick overnight and then the longer flights to get home to Seattle (which will undoubtedly required more repacking). It has been a trip filled with explorations of the mountains, of the past, of new and different flavors and inspirations. I am still mulling over a few things; such as why purveyors of clothing throughout the Andes all want me to buy an alpaca sweater with alpacas conga dancing across my chest. (Like that is a good look for...

Feb 24, 2019 - Pre-Inca exploration day

Today we were on the go all day escorted by Obar who did not speak a lick of English. We started out at breakfast meeting Marthe and Paul from Montreal.

Martha won out and we engaged Obar...

Feb 9, 2019 - Last few days on the Beach

Hello to all! Well we are spending the last few days of our journey on the beach, trying to soak up all the Vitamin D we can; I hear that more snow may be forecast before we return??? I am not exactly a sun bunny; I mean; I used to lie out in the California sun growing up; putting on cocoa butter which essentially turned me into a giant fry zone for the sun's rays, or using baby oil with iodine in it (to turn you that attractive orange/brown color). However, nowadays I tend to avoid it; today I slathered myself with sun block and sat under...
