At this time, Aaron is back to school, I am back to work and we are attempting to catch up from being absent from our actual lives for 14 days!
I will begin posting photos, stories and videos from out trip to Peru once we have settled back into our normal routines and can find the additional time to do so.
|A view from the streets in Lima|
The streets and sidewalks seem to be as crowed with cars and people as the hillsides.
There are approximately 250,000 to 300,000 people in Huancayo, Peru
There are approximately 7 to 8 million people in Lima, Peru
|A cow still decorated from a recent festival|
Both it and the chicken in the background are grazing...and pooping, in the front yard of a home....in the same place the children play. Add sheep and dogs to this and one can only imagine the big picture.
|A street vendor in Huancayo|
Storefronts on wheels....everywhere you turn!
|A still decorated sheep grazing on land as hard as concrete|
Imagine having to plow, by hand, the rows in a field of rock laden dirt dried as hard as the sidewalk.
|A day on the streets of Huancayo|
The people in Huancayo can never be mistaken for meanderers, they are all headed someplace in a hurry!
|Women in Huancayo waiting for a bus |
Imagine carrying all of your Saturday groceries on your back while traveling in standing room only public transportation to reach the 10-20 miles back home.

They love the sour stuff!
