I have a great time reading your blog, the pictures are beautiful and the manner you explain them brings them to live and are also highly educational. My father was from Acobamba-Huancavelica he passed away four years ago and he allways had the desire to bare the gospel in his hometown, I never went there, but through your pictures I feel as if I have been transported there.
