View from the Andes

From the first photo I saw, on the cover of National Geographic, I wanted to see it myself. So, Mike and I headed last week to Chicago O'Hare, then to Miami, then on to Lima, then to Cusco and by train to the Sacred Valley of the Inca, and finally to Machu Picchu. We loved Peru, the people, the places and the food. We traveled with close friends, seeing and learning so much. And none of the four of us suffered too much from the high altitude, drinking plenty of the local remedy, mate de coca.

Sometimes it is easy for me to get buried in my studio; cutting, stitching and thinking. It is good to get out into our big, beautiful world, and be amazed and delighted.
