This is the View...

Beautiful, eh?  This is Pueblo Libre, our hood.  I took this picture one of the first weeks that I was here in Peru.  Watching sunsets on Sarah's roof was something that definitely made the transition easier.  Notice the park out front and the cliffs in the background.  Lima ain't as bad as they make it out to be :)

  This is Sarah and I in Arequipa at the Monasterio de Santa Catalina which was built out of white volcanic rock in 1579.  The nuns lived in seclusion for almost 400 years before the doors were opened to the public.  This day was a bit cloudy so you can't see the volcanoes in the picture but I'll try to post one of them soon.

  Jennifer & Craig braved 13 interesting hours in a air conditioning free bus and came for a visit.  big smile.  We spent a few wonderful days with our friend Raquel, talking, playing cards, and enjoying those foods that are hard to come by in this country (a.k.a. mexican cuisine, steak & the café mocha).  For those of you who don't know, Craig is on staff in Lima with me and Jennifer was my Servant Team Coordinator back in the day (back in Lima for a visit).  It is in her beautiful footsteps that I follow as I lead my first team in August!
