Floating Village

Don’t let the petite size of this woman fool you, she rowed us through the amalgamation of floating houses with great ease, much of the distance we covered was upstream no less. Chau Doc, Vietnam

Canyon of the duck

Riding along the Rio Santa that carved the “canyon of the duck” and separates the Cordillera Negra and Cordillera Blanca. 30 or so tunnels, some quite long, dot the route. Canon del Pato, Peru

Haunchaco

I’m not typically a fan of beach resorts but this Peruvian retreat was a great place to spend Thanksgiving and the only time I would leave the Andes while in Peru.

Ecuador

Crossing into another hemisphere!

Little bridges and big gorges

Making my way to the Peruvian coast south of Cajamarca and the only time I would leave the Andes Mountains while in Peru. Small bridges such as these connect 1000 foot gorges along the route and are typical of the epic scenery of the Peruvian Andes. Near Cajamarca, Peru

Maggie Noodles!

Our hosts prepare us a meal of maggie noodle casserole, a staple in the Himalayas. Pang, Ladakh, India

Banos

Volcan Tungurahua near Banos, Ecuador
