    Steve,

    Thanks for sharing. I love the picture with the switchbacks up the mountain. I actually started riding while living in Mexico....ahh riding sheep herder singletrack. Is there anything better than that, knowing that you were probably the first person to ride a bike on that "singletrack"?

    I hope that next summer I will be making my own tracks and taking some pictures down in South America. I look forward to seeing more pictures and chatting about your adventures.

    peru WAS one of the places that I thought would be cool to go to. After my 4th day of an 12 day tour(at machu pichu) I started to throw up and could not stop. I was ran from one "clinic" to the other for the rest of the 8 days until I was finally admited into a hospital in miami. My digestive system has had nothing but problems since then which has now led me to loose my job and declair disability.

    I don't think I will be back to peru and not because I have already been there......

    Actually, it is probably your favorite word in Cechua (or maybe Aymara)

    not sure on that one..........the Quechua live on the NW side & the Aymara live on the SE side. both are totally incomprehensable to gringos. the Quechua overthrew every one from S. Columbia to the Rio Bio-Bio. the Aymara were so tough they let them retain their culture & language. the Inca built over 10,000 miles of cobbled roads, many of which are in great shape, and then there are the millions of miles of interconnecting trails. to add to that the Taquile island people out on the lake have their own weaving culture & there are the odd folks who live on the floating islands made of reeds..........i grew up on the Rez so it feels like home to me!

    that is the main highway into Colca Canyon - the deepest canyon in the world ~ 10,000ft. deep. no, that's not a typo. it was a hell of a grunt. you could bike probally 50% but you would definately walk ALLOT. F-up & you would die.
