I’m off to Peru soon. My mission: Well, I’ll share that with you later.
If you’re an astute aficionado of my travel diary, you may have noticed a small picture of me atop the famous Incan archeological site Machu Picchu, but no write-up of events.
The fact is that just after returning from Peru in 2004, I did compile an elaborate photo essay, but all the text was lost due to a silly cyber accident on my part. So the essay never surfaced.
Let’s see if I can get one together after my forthcoming brief visit to Peru again – my third. Meanwhile here’s some more photos to whet your appetite.
This shot was taken while flying over the Andes. We were at full altitude.
Exploring the ancient and mysterious Machu Picchu.
After a frightening, rough and sore ride to remember: Up a treacherous mountain path to 4900 metres (over 16,000 feet). Breathless (for me and the poor horse).
I walked down the mountain, much to her relief.
