Excited and Excited!!
Your blog almost left me in tears as I was reading how the mother and daughter kindly walked with you and sent you off with hugs and kisses. What a truly friendly city!! I love the pictures you have posted along with the descriptions, Vibrant colors and picture captured just right! I'm so happy to see that you are finding your way (maybe a little longer than expected) around town and that communication is not a problem. I can't wait to read/see your next posting. Thank you for including me in on this....it's like I was in Peru myself! Stay safe out there Sara. I know you are a sweet soul, and would go out of the way for anyone, but please keep an eye out and know your surroundings. I love you my niece. I love you sweetie
