In Peru

Just a quick post to say I’m in Lima after several wonderful days in the Amazon jungle.  Stayed at a series of lodges run by the excellent Explorama outfit.  (Mostly in the more remote ones.  They were really magical.) When I’m back I’ll post some of my photos, but do check out the links.  These were started by a Peace Corps volunteer and are ecofriendly and all around terrific.  Saw amazing birds, butterflies (my beloved blue morpho among them), monkeys, pink dolphins, snakes (fortunately only far off), bugs, and tons more. Walked in the forest canopy, went on many walks in the jungle, visited villages and schools, a clinic, a healer, and much more. 

Tomorrow I’m off to Cuzco and Machu Picchu.
