When i am there I call your guiding spirit
20th April 2018

Later, when trying to fly out of Peru, I was stopped at the airport and three levels of police were in the room when they searched my luggage. They saw the fossil that I bought at Pisqa market on xray maching, and seized it, and lectured me that it was legal to buy the fossil, but illegal to take it out of the country. !!!! I was so outraged by the set up, telling them to check the photos on my phone to see the fossils laid out on market tables. They shrugged it off... I signed papers (think to say that I'd never try to take out artefects from Peru) and I got on Air Canada plane thinking that once again, the touristica-con artitst-government systems were set up to rip off tourists.

Hello, Tomas, I don't know about the bus to Tilcara as I didn't go that far. I hope you have a great trip. The colours of the mountains are breathtaking.

HI: Great article about your travel to Argentina and Jujuy,etc. I am planning a similar trip to Purmamarca from Salta this September and was pleased to see that it is possible to take a bus from Jujuy to Purmamarca, however, is it also possible to take a bus from Purmamarca to Tilcara and do they run on a regular basis? I was going to rent a car or a jeep but perhaps this is an unnecessary expense if the bus service is reliable. Thanks. I am returning from Jujuy to Salta and will fly from there to BA so I will remember to buy a round trip ticket.

Teresa, I'm very envious of your trip, but especially this one to MachuPicchu. It's a place that's on the top of my list for places to visit. :)

Mmm Guinness
I bet Guinness tastes just a little bit better when you're in Dublin :) Also, I'm guessing that's the Grafton St. that Halifax's is named after?

jungle crystals
What you bought was a quartz geode. Quartz forms inside balls of mother rock called a geode. When you crack the geode open it is filled with crystals of quartz. If it is purple, it is amethyst, if it is clear, it is rock quartz, etc. Quartz is very abundant in s. america, so it probaly is from the peruvian jungle.

Yes that's where we ate
Hi Teresa. We ended up spending most of a day in Aguas Calientes too. We were in the post internet cafe and I did some shopping because we were heading home. We did eat at the hot spring pizza place. The live entertainers were on the sidewalk between the tables and the trains. From what I have read all the textiles are handmade in Peru. I have seen photos of women sitting at looms in their yards. So you are definitely supporting the economy by shopping. We were fascinated by the workers carrying everything through town by wheelbarrow or on their backs since there are no cars. We wondered how the busses got to AC.

World Peace
When I was traveling, I felt the tension between Poland and Germand and Russia, over past wounds. Yesterday was Remembrance Day, and the world remembered these wounds/wars once again. I agree with you, money is less important than peace.

Hi, Tammy. I'm resting in Sutton Bridge. Didn't know that about Bono's tour and the light art. Interesting. So much literature and art alive in daily life.

animated light art
I guess Bono has a grand influence on Ireland to say the least. The lit walking characters were featured in their last tour of concerts. Specifically from their latest album, the song called "sometimes you can't make it on your own" was a song written by Bono for his Dad, who recently passed away before the tour. anyway, the lights dimmed and bono sang the song, the whole while the animated walking lit artwork was walking in the background, it was so cool. Glad to see that Dubliners picked up on it and are displaying Bono's set ideas,lol.....yep, just full of all kinds of useless U2 trivia. Where are you now?
