Peruvian Child

We visited Tauca (see if you can find it, it’s near Chinchero) and the people there made us welcome.

This young lady rode on her mother’s shoulders much of the time we were there.

Youngster

She will break a few suitor’s hearts someday.

Bella

We have a guest cat at our house. Bella has visited on a couple of occasions and is slowly getting used to the place.

She looked quite comfortable the other afternoon.

Lazy

“Please leave me alone and let me lie here in the sun.”, is the message.

Pablo Seminario, Artist

The studio of Pablo Seminario is in Urubamba, a town of about 8000 people in the Sacred Valley of the Incas. We were privileged to visit with the artist at his home, shop and studio where he took the time to meet us and describe his approach to the art that he produces.

Ceramic items produced in his studio/workshop by staff are also on sale in his small store on the site.

These days, I am drinking my morning coffee from one of his uniquely decorated mugs.

Weaving

Fabrics were made by the Incas on rudimentary looms. The process is quite slow and deliberate.

The patience required is admirable.

Back then, time was in abundance.

Dim View

This Alpaca is taking a very dim view of having its portrait made.

Dim View

Or is it a Llama? A Guanaco? I don’t think it’s a Vicuna.

This guy lives at Awana Kancha near Pisac in the Sacred Valley of the Incas.

Summer Time

I’m feeling nostalgic for Summer.

It will be here before you know it.

Sunday at Laurentian Ski Hill

North Bay is blessed with an alpine ski hill situated inside town. The hill has been operating for over 50 years and has provided recreational opportunities for North Bay people, and at least two World Champions have grown up here and learned their craft.

Today was a busy day at the hill.

People having Great Fun on a gorgeous winter day.
