Visit on the Hill to the Beraún Family

As you know, we are hiring local LDS artesans to make tapistries for us. Today Scott visited the home of Hovita Oscanoa and her husband Mario Beraún (second counselor in our branch presidency) to see how one of the tapestries is coming. Here, Andrea shows Scott her work:

The Beraún family poses by the tapestry loom:

This closeup shows the beautiful detail of Hovita's work:

After inspecting the tapestries, we hiked up a high hill east of town. Here Scott is stopped by an angry, barking, but hopefully harmless, dog:

From a high cliff, Scott got this view of the little valley on the outskirts of town:

At one point on the hill, we got a nice view of our Tarma home. It's the blue house in the middle of the picture:

WOW! That is amazing. Glad that dog didn't eat you.

It's amazing how those tapestry artisans are able to reproduce the original pictures. In your first photo, I couldn't even tell one of the images of Christ was a tapestry until I clicked on it.

I'm still so amazed by those beautiful tapestries!

That's something we'll be bringing back with us from our visit there in August/September - one of those gorgeous tapestries. Amazing workmanship!
