    From the guinea pig to eat to the convent, cathedrals, churches, Cristo Blanco, it's all a weal of culture, history, and beauty. But, the photos of the locals, especially children, was the best. Also enjoyed artisan markets, fountain, museums, and plazas.

    After seeing your fine pictures, I felt again that there is no need for me to try to show it all. I can just try to focus on tips, stories and special bits of information. Keep up the good work. bob
