Another Monday…hope everyone has a super week!
We’re enjoying our time in Peru, although working hard every day. The weather is nice here right now as it’s winter and not quite as hot. Here’s a look back to 1905:
Monday, Monday… Hope you’re enjoying a wonderful 4th of July long weekend. Far away on another continent in the high altitude Inca city of Cuzco:
It’s Thursday, here’s a classic…
Hope everyone is enjoying the summer. The temperatures have been as high as 115 degrees in Northwest Arizona where we live. Humidity is low, as low as 4% sometimes, so it just feels like a blast furnace rather than the drippy rainforest kinda feeling.

Thursday already…another look back:
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 look back:
