Retired educational administrator, who has published travel articles and photos. I teach swimming these days, and dabble in short fiction and non-fiction. I'm a lifelong travel junkie who did Peace Corps in Senegal, West Africa when young. I tried to do some mission/charity work in Vietnam in 2013, but that trip was a misadventure which was called short by family emergency.
Now after five years of resolving family deaths and illnesses, I'm getting back on the road, in a fancy schmancy tour to PERU....From the Inca Empire to the Peruvian Amazon.
I never take tours like this but I'm tired and this itinerary looks so interesting, and exotic. I'll get to refresh my spirit, practice my Spanish, meet great people, eat and drink Peruvian cuisine with abandon, climb Machu Pichu, swim in the Amazon, shop till I drop. And maybe with any luck, I can ratchet up my writing discipline and find my voice again.
I'll try to upload photos and visit this blog regularly if I can find some wifi. They say it's not so ubiquitous there.
