Tbt: Old Peru

It’s another week back at the ranch. It’s all going well. It’s finally starting to cool down, and it’s very welcome.

Here’s a look back at the La Palma Railway Station in Lima.

Still grinding away in New Mexico. Cabin is coming along nicely though…

Here’s a look at the Costa Verde cliffs in Miraflores. In recent years, the Peruvian and local governments have been working hard to make the coastline a real jewel of Lima. It’s come a long way from the old days…

Here’s yet another look back via Cardcow. Cardcow offers an amazing quantity of vintage photos & postcards. Full disclosure: We don’t have any financial interest in them, we just like their stuff! Enjoy…

Nearing the end of summer, if not per the time of year, at least it’s because of back to school etc. It’s still hot here for another month, meanwhile nights are cooling further north in the Rockies.

Here’s the old School of Medicine in Lima via Cardcow:

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:

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

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.

Here’s another classic postcard from Cardcow…
