Blizzard, winter, ice age?

One minute you watch a weather system approaching, the next you are suddenly caught up in it. The last two months haven’t been about the weather but lots of things have arrived in a confusing and disorientating way. I’ve not had a chance to blog but hope this and the next blog give some insight... Continue Reading →

Broadening horizons

Our limited experience of South America has, except for brief stays in Lima and Arequipa, been the Peruvian Amazon.
