We’ve been running hard lately, visiting all of our coffee friends & getting ready to return to Peru. Here’s a look at some weaving in the wonderful market town of Pisaq (Pisac) in the Sacred Valley below Cuzco.
Here’s a scene I believe it’s in Ollantaytambo, which is in the Sacred valley on the trek to Machu Picchu.
First Monday in June. We’re enjoying the long days, but the daytime temps have recently climbed into the low 100’s & it’s not much fun trying to do stuff outside right now. Mornings are good though, so every day there’s some little project waiting.
Yesterday, in a rare moment of not paying attention to the desert while walking to the garden, I found myself within striking distance of Mohave Green rattlesnake. He coiled and rattled, and I jumped about 8 feet in a microsecond, heart pumping and a full shot of adrenaline. It was a moment of profound gratitude; it could have easily gone very wrong. My sense of caution is renewed…
Here’s a shot of some folks sitting on a bench to try to give a little perspective to the towering mountains surrounding Machu Picchu. No wonder it wasn’t discovered until 1911…
Monday, May 22, 2017. We finally started getting hot here. I’ve seen 98 degrees now. The bee saga continues as the beekeeper has “no showed” twice now. We’re looking at alternatives…
Meanwhile, here’s some incredible steps at Machu Picchu;
Geez, it’s Monday alright. The jeep began to make some terrible sounds in Kingman today, but it turned to be just something that had come loose bouncing down the dirt roads out here.
But then after returning home, the bees began swarming on the front porch…see below for today’s bonus pic!
Here’s the Machu Picchu Monday photo, a shot taken with a look at some ancient ruins above Ollantaytambo, in the Sacred Valley:
As promised, today’s Monday surprise (the bees:)
Monday, Monday…here’s another photo taken in the Sacred Valley near Machu Picchu. Enjoy:
