Elder Hasler had to go to Puno, Peru (next to Lake Titicaca) and he took us with him. We visited a small town called Choquehuanca, where Elder Hasler needed to train some of the leadership there. He is a counselor to our Mission President and the Mission is in charge of the districts, so he has assignments to visit and train in the smaller towns in the mission. On our way we saw these llamas grazing. The little memorial in the foreground is a grave marker.
While we were waiting for Elder Hasler to finish his training in Choquehuanca, I thought I would shoot a few pictures of this little town. It is maybe 10 blocks by 10 blocks and full of very old buildings. It felt like a place that time had forgotten,
|The town is full of old houses like this.|
|This is a happy boy pretending he is riding this motorcycle. It made me miss my grandson.|
Below is a view looking down a street. The girls are herding sheep.
|Peru is full of the contrast between ancient and modern - not only the buildings but the people too.|
|This is our view on our way out of town. This is the Altiplano. Isn't it beautiful?|
