|We had some heavy rain storms. This is the main highway out of|
Tupiza. Half of the road was washed away and they are working
on it. Look in the bottom left hand corner. You can see the
yellow line that was the middle of the road.
|The cactus are blooming now (Nov-Dec) around the|
area. This one had beautiful dark pink blossoms on top.
|Their are large white flowers on some cactus.|
|The green bushes growing by the cactus are thorn bushes. Their thorns|
are long and nasty. They like to burn the wood from these bushes
on their cooking fires. It burns hot and long.
|This is a view from the road to Quiriza. The valley is turning|
greener every week. The corn is growing and makes the fields colorful.
|The flowers and shrubs have been beautiful this year at the|
Quiriza chapel. They put goat manure on all of them.
The gladiolas and marigolds are taller than any I have
|We were visiting Quiriza one afternoon and here|
came the Catacata children riding their burro.
Melvin, Melanie, Helen and Lesley. They are
a great family and all active in the church.
|We visited with the Condori Family in Titihoya. Here Rosaria is|
topping the beets. She will take them to market and sell them
|This is the adobe wall next to our apartment. If you look in the|
drain pipe you can see two baby birds. This is the view from
one of our kitchen windows.
|These 3 parrots live in the trees by|
the open garage where we park our pickup.
They are fun to see and very noisy.
