On the Way to El Brujo

The western side of the Andes is rather arid.
I much prefer the mountainous region with it's flora.

Port of Salaverry, Peru

Sailing south, the next port was Salaverry, Peru, near Trujillo.
Not only can this port accommodate large ships, but it provides an opportunity for those wanting to visit Machu Picchu region for 2 nights and rejoin the ship when it arrives in Callao (port for Lima) for an overnight stay.

Next: Road trip to archaeological sites.

(I have not been adding to this blog as frequently as I would like, or visiting your blogs--due to a challenge I made with a couple of my applique friends. In other words--I have been stitching too much!?!)
