Peruvian People Postcards

MARK:  The sun is going down in Bolivia.  Late evening rays hit the red houses that adorn the mountainside as I look out from our hotel window, here in La Paz.

Peru has been and gone.  A country of highs and lows for us, literally and metaphorically.  After the highs of Machu Piccu we got even higher at Lake Titicaca where we had another really interesting home stay and I met a little friend called Aldo.

We then travelled to the Bolivian Border and subsequently endured the worst bus journey of our lives, as we were bumped and shaken for three hours on roads that really shouldn’t have been called roads.

But this short Photo-Blog is not about Bolivia, more about this fascinating country another day.  No, this missive from Mark focusses on the People of Peru.  You don’t need many words, when you look at the pictures of their etched faces, old and new.  So as we say goodbye to the Land of Paddington Bear, we leave you with some lasting memories from us in the form of a few photo postcards.  Have a good weekend.  Three and a bit weeks to go.  Eeeeeekkkkkkk.

    • It is not rIght and most pain is when I am in bed. Mark’s shoulder is still not right from the canyoning and again causes pain at night. A trip to the Doctor when we get home me thinks, as I don’t fancy the Witch Doctors here in Bolivia. Sarah x
