Tbt: Old Peru

Continuing on our Callao theme, here’s another vintage postcard via Cardcow.com:

Machu Picchu Monday

Have a wonderful week. Think of Peru & the vast beauty and marvel of Machu Picchu.

Have a great weekend.

Callao is the port area of Lima. Today, it’s a bustling area not only because of the shipping, but the airport is located there. Here’s a look back via Cardcow:

Machu Picchu Monday

Here’s yet another view from the journey between Cuzco & Machu Picchu in the Sacred Valley in Peru.

Have a good week. It’s a travel day for us; it will be good to be back in the States.

It’s been a flurry of activity, but the end is in sight. Definitely pics to follow soon, I promise. Wait until you see the place…

Here’s a classic from Cardcow…

Lima, Peru – Esquina de Bodegones

 

Machu Picchu Monday

It’s been a quiet Monday so far, which is always welcome.

Today, once again, there are workers doing a variety of things in the house here in Tarapoto. Some windows have been installed, and on the second floor, we put in a beautiful wood divider. It gives the living room there a little more privacy, and looks great too. Pics to follow once the dust settles.

All is going well in Tarapoto. Everything is in disorder as we’re having various things done while we’re here. The place just keeps getting better. We’ve put in AC for the smaller bedroom on the third floor, which will be a nice guest room, or possible rental room. We’ve also added a microbath in a nearby unused space, so the new room also now has it’s own bath. At least it will in just a few days. We’re still doing finishing touches, and we’re waiting for the tech to show up and install the continuous hot water heater. The carpenter comes Tuesday to install the door.

Machu Picchu Monday

Monday, and it’s a return to banging noises (we’re having some work done.) Internet has been sporadic…

Have an amazing week…
