This was taken from a rock above the campsite. If you look at the very bottom of the photo you will see the roof of the place we stayed in. Very basic accomodations but you can not beat the price... $10 a night!
These are the mountain roads that must be driven on in order to reach the campsite. Do you see the car in the picture? There were a few times I couldn't see the edge of the road outside of my passenger window! Of course Lucho assured me that he was quite the fair driver and I need not be afraid... it didn't make me feel any more secure.
A very pituresque bridge, nice to look at but not so nice to cross... especially with a baby in hand!
We went for a short walk up the river and saw some horses feeding. They were not wild but belong to the owner of the camp.
El Rio - The River
There was a trench built to divert water away from the river for use in various ways in the camp... our dishes being one of them. I loved hearing the gurgle of it in the quiet of the night. I also enjoyed waking up to crow of roosters!
Another view through the rail on the bridge crossing the trench (I'm sure there is a better name for this)
The night we arrived Lucho blessed us with a huge feast all cooked over the fire.
Rebecca, her husband and her son with Eddy & Lucho.

Father & Son
Lucho cooking us another meal. Lemon Chicken and Papas (potatoes).
Last but not least, our little Josiah is growing up so fast and is quite a handful. Here he is exploring the suitcase
Well, I'm happy to have finally posted this entry. I have a couple of more lined up for you already. Eddy took a trip to Ica this past Thursday (a four and a half hour trip one way) and then on Friday we had an event at the church for the kids.
Did anyone ready about the "earthquake" here on Saturday? I say earthquake because the paper reported it that way (4.5) but everyone here says it was a stong tremor and indeed it was! The first tremor I experienced I could only hear but this one I felt. This is the "month of the temblors" (tremors) and this is one thing that will surely take some getting used to!
