Driving Through

And, because I've spent countless hours on buses in the last week or so, here is a series I like to call "Peru's Many Faces, As Seen From the Window of a Bus." Hopefully these will reveal to you how dynamic the landscape is here, and how sharply it can change. It's beautiful and raw, often achingly poor but forever shifting.

Love, Kate

It's desert all the way down the coast, from Piura to Lima:

Then mountains and adobe pueblos from Lima to Huancayo:

And these are for my pa:

Then it's farms and floodplains and cacti and distant mountains into Huancayo:

And, interspersed, there was much standing around in remote and beautiful rest stops.

Missing you all, and loving Peru. Besitos!
