Chacra, Pueblo, Mar

Chacra (no, not chakra!) is Quechua for farmland. The Peruvian coast is buttressed by desert, followed a few hours later by sierra, mountain land.

¿Cuántas casitas hay en Casitas?

Se vende gasolina.

House made from wood of the endangered algarrobo tree, which is also used to make syrups and, consequently, the popular Algarrobina cocktail (which, sadly, is delicious).


Guess who´s back?

Whoever designed this logo is a genius, have I mentioned that before? Coca Cola continues to dominate the Latin American landscape.


Love the way they wrap the banana bunch.

Back to tacky Tumbes.

I believe this is by Víctor Delfín (you´ll see another of his scultpures soon in Lima).

DIY gas.

Nothing like these coastal sunsets.

Sunsets on the Pacific.

Low-tide means lots of interesting sea-life.

Blurry spiky urchin, the opposite of below...
