Adventure

Today we had an adventure. I’m convinced you can’t plan them. They happen in unexpected ways at unexpected times. We set out to visit a remote mountain community by the name of Llutuyo. This 300 person community is very remote and very mountain. I suspect we topped out over 13,000 ft. The particular need in this community is for a source of uncontaminated drinking water. The people have complained to the local government for years of head aches and intestinal problems that has been traced to their water source.

I’m going to use the rest of the computer time here to post some pictures. I suspect Bryce may wish to tell you more when he blogs. These photos today will be a mix of people and scenery, to give you an idea of what I believe is one of the most beautiful (and needy) places I have ever seen.
