Tbt: Old Peru

Thursday, and a beautiful week it’s been in northwest Arizona. Lots of sun, and pleasant temperatures. We’re loving it…

Here’s a look back. Many of Lima’s finest colonial homes have disappeared, replaced by sterile apartment buildings. A few of the old gems still remain. Many are now embassies & commercial offices. (via Cardcow)

Machu Picchu Monday

It was a splendid Monday, lots of things done, and the weather was perfect.

It’s a busy time, as coffee roasters everywhere gear up for the all important holiday season. Btw, coffee makes a great gift. We’ll be sending out some pre-Thanksgiving specials tomorrow. Check your email!

Here’s your Machu Picchu moment:

It’s Thursday, my how the week goes by when you stay busy. I guess it’s better to be productive than idle though. Have a great weekend…

Hope you’ve had a good week. We shot up to Las Vegas today to deliver coffee, and have lunch with my parents. It was fun, and we had surprisingly good luck with the traffic.

Rather than take the new I-11 bypass, we go through Boulder City the “old way.” Now with less traffic, it’s much more pleasant, and even faster than the bypass.

Here’s a postcard from Lima – 1906

Machu Picchu Monday

Monday (it sure is.) Have a good week, be sure to give someone a big hug.
