Monday, Monday can’t trust that day…
Machu Picchu is still there though…
Our trip to Machu Picchu in the Fall is already booked. Now we’re just counting the days…
Have a great weekend everyone!
Another busy week here at the ranch, but we’re loving it. This Spring has been lovely this year, and we’ve had some hot days, but mostly it’s been especially nice this year.
Have a great weekend!
We awoke today to the news of another strong earthquake in Peru. Natalia emailed us from Tarapoto, and said that the power had gone out, but everything appears to be OK.
Peruvian authorities were scrambling to assess the damage after an earthquake with a magnitude as high as 8.0 rocked the Peruvian Amazon region in the early hours of Sunday morning, leaving at least one person dead.
Meanwhile in Yurimaguas, there was some damage. The old adobe structures don’t do well in the big quakes as this photo via El Comercio shows:
We’ve been to Yurimaguas several times as it’s a great place to catch a cargo boat to Iquitos. It’s a growing port city in the Amazon river network.
Our prayers and best wishes go out to all affected.
