gone to Arequipa, hiked the Colca Canyon, eaten some rocoto relleno and relaxed
in what is supposed to be one of Peru’s cleanest and most beautiful
cities.  Unfortunately, our plans were
disrupted by some strikes, but...

Happy Birthday, Paria
So I guess yesterday was the anniversary of our town. I was pretty sure they celebrated that a little over a month ago. Oh well, here´s an album of little kids in traditional Peruvian dress.

I’m gonna start a little negative and work my way up to the more positive stuff. First off, this past week our abuelito, Virgilio Huané Cacha, passed away after nearly 88 years of life. In the United States, when a family ...

In Case You´ve Forgotten Us...
We are, indeed, still alive. I apologize
for the extended absence, but I assure you all that we are as well as can be
expected. We’re just about at the year and a half mark, and were I to write in
detail of every little thing, you’d find yourselves in a par...

Thanksgiving
So we had a few Thanksgiving celebrations. The Sunday before, we had a potluck with the other volunteers in which we took over the kitchen of a local café. There was turkey, green bean casserole, sweet potato pie, pasta salad (Menda´s plate), spiced peaches...

Just A Small Update With A Few Photos
In no particular order: We got some chickens. Menda's public trash can project is a success. We almost "stole" another neighbor's cat - by this I really mean that we gave it food when it came by to visit, but the last cat we did that for never left. Menda g...

As some of you may have remembered, we got married two years ago from the 26th of June. As a treat to ourselves, we decided we’d take a little vacation out to the beach. You see, we may live over two miles above sea level in ...
