Amazon
You will love the Amazon, especially after the Andes, it's like being able to breathe again! Have a great trip. We are off to France for a week, hoping the weather will be less humid, London unbearable, but then we are lightweights compared to you Arizonans!

My friend Glenn
My friend Glenn (retired attorney, Fresno) spent a year in Cuenca with his then high school aged son. When they returned Glenn brought with him a lovely wife Alicia exactly half his age. Glenn is interested in your exploits and is able to access the blog. Keep 'em coming.

hi
Really enjoying your diary. I remember visiting various markets and always enjoyed them - except for the smell of the meat department!

Carne
But that is what meat actually smells like when you are not in Safeway.....

Con agradecimiento
Hi Friends. I much appreciate the work, observations, photos and postings. It is somewhat like being there. Many of the photos are 'prize-winners.' The apparent cleanliness of the market is impressive. Stay well.

How very interesting
Not sure that getting rid of the arthritis pain is worth trading for mild pulmonary edema....but hopefully you can soon be free of both! Does present some interesting things to ponder in terms of future living arrangements. We're enjoying your adventure vicariously - keep those posts coming!

Vista de vistas
What beautiful vistas !! Love all the pix. But Travelblog has an issues with posting. If it is only the beginning of the post, and I click on "more" - it then says "this journal entry has been deleted" !! But I can get it back by going to another entry and coming back. But still can't see this whole post anyway. Sorry to hear about your lung problems !! But interesting and odd about the lack of joint pain !! Makes me wonder. But I just got back from HUMIDITY and rain rain in KY and was pretty achy !! Still am with monsoons here. Dang !! Have fun - stay well !!

ENVY
Pat and I are enjoying the Shakespeare festival, but would like to trade weather conditions with you. We arrived just in time to experience the worst heat wave in recent memory -100+temps. Glad your enjoying your trip. With all the hiking up and down both of you should be in great physical condition.

Looks beautiful!!
It is good to hear from you. It looks like a wonderful place. We are now starting the monsoons here so we are getting spectacular storms and a bit of relief from the heat. Have fun!

Travel
This is a great way to share your experience. My traveling has been less impressive-10 days in New England. Saw the North Church in Boston-one if by land,two if by sea. Very prominent in height even today. Stay healthy! Ken

6-9% grade
I remember a story in a science mag from many years ago regarding a study of 3 cultures where humans had long life-spans. Andes, Caucasus, and perhaps Japan. Scientists measured everything: food, # of children, blood types, education, water, sun exposure, labor, lifestyles. Nothing correlated. For example, one culture was mostly vegetarian, another mostly carnivorous. After eliminating the planned factors in the study the scientists realized that in all 3 locales the people during a normal day experienced, by foot, considerable elevation changes.

Interesting you should say that
Over the past 9-10 years, arthritis in my hands, back,shoulders etc has grown steadily more painful. The worst has been in AZ where I had assumed the dry heat climate would at least reduce the pain. I have been here less than a week and I have not experienced a single pain. Mornings have always been the worst and now I wake up and feel just fine.I'm gonna pay lots of attention over the next weeks. Based on your memory of the study, I will make sure I keep up walking to and around town daily. Ciao Mike
