    I thought they looked Peruvian. I spent eight years there growing up. Very cool shot.

  • Really?! Wow! 8 years is enough time to know more than to recognize decorative gourds!! Did you get to see much of the country? :-) val

    Actually yes, all the normal tourist spots plus months at a time on trips to the Amazon, coastal and mountain reagons. My parents were diligent in making sure that I experienced and saw life as most people could only read about.

  • that’s very fortunate!! :-) v.
