Just had a beautiful threehours ride going to get coconut oil from this “factory”, south, and the place was gorgeous! In the grey coolness of the early morning mountain air, the mountains looked Like Lord of the Rings. We drove back to Vilca by way of the backroads, through the town of Quinara with goats, gigantic Seibo trees with red flowers, white sea birds called Garsa in this pueblo called Quinara, by the river. So beautiful.
We also passed the house of the man believed to be 120 years old! The neighbors said he was out walking! Then we went down to the river and let the dogs play. The sun was shining, the dogs literally crept over the bridge, but they did it!, they crossed over, And then we stopped at an artisan’s house to see his beautiful furniture and sculptures of wood. Fantastico!
