A little topography of Curahuasi. I copied this from our walk today up to the Mirador. I measured the difference in altitude from the canyon vista to the riverbed. 4430 feet! And it is practically straight down. When we first moved here, I could barely stand to watch my kids get within 10 feet of the edge. Now I barely blink when they lean to look over it. Below a shot of Allison getting low to buy our vegetables at the Sunday afternoon market. For those of us with back issues, shopping is a little less easy in Curahuasi.
Is that a giant cantaloupe in the background?
It is a pumpkin. They sell them in slices.
