Urubamba Life

The Pro Peru Offices

Volunteers creating water filters of clay...kneading with their FEET!

The red wall with the brown door is the entrance to Pro Peru offices where we live.

El Templo de Torrechayoc...the church just a stone's throw away from where we live. I go in there to think sometimes.

An indigenous woman walking down the main market street. Where those top hats came from I'll never understand. Notice the legwarmers. It's not as warm as you might think.

The church adjacent to the main plaza in the center of Urubamba.

View of our little house (shared) and the shop where the filters are made behind. The house is made of adobe, with a cement floor, and tile in style.

Brent on our first day here with a bowl of soup at a restaurant. Here, lunch is the biggest meal of the day, generally starting with a big veggie soup, and then a main dish of potatoes and meat or beans and rice, etc. All of that, plus some chicha morada (purple corn juice) will cost 4-5 soles (a buck and a half or so).

Here I am at the same restaurant. We like to eat upstairs and have a view of the main plaza and church.
