This is a most interesting ride to keep up with.

Did the large truck on its side get blown over?

Just joking with ya! Happy Holidays! Thanks for the voodoo that you do!


(actually I think she's cuter than a speckled puppy)

BTW, I think most of that gray car damage will "buff right out."

Ummmm... best get your eyes looked into. Her funny little pants are yellow!!! You wish you had a pair of those!!!

Thanks for keeping up.

There were many dips in the road probably when water comes across, so there are signs before the dip.....often drivers will go to one side of the dip to avoid it......it didn't work out for this driver as the road was under mined at the side and it just collapsed. It must have just happened as the Police got there as we did. This desert ride was 120 miles of blowing sand, dunes and big rigs.....not for the faint of heart. There is an alternate route through the mountains but it takes a lot more time.
Generally the big rig drivers are very good and very savvy, and ever so helpful and good. I assume they know we are ON THE ROAD just like they are with our big load and they know what it.s like travelling day after day.

My first picture in Peru!
















We're on our way to Suyo to find a Hostel for the night.
It was getting to be late in the afternoon; Suyo was about one half hour from the border.
