Where is the Urubamba Mama?

It has been a whirlwind last few weeks. Every time I sit down to catch up on our adventures, we go off to explore somewhere else. Since I last posted there has been a lot of activity. Jeff and I went with Project Helping Hands up into the mountains to run clinics, then I hiked with 68 llamas and the rest of the team to several other small communities. Soon after the medical team left, Jeff and I took the kids up north for a surf vacation with another family we met here in Urubamba. We’ve done several more all day hikes around the valley. Jeff & I connected with a local clinic and are teaching a series of courses (First Aid, Basic Life Support, and Advanced Cardiac Life Support) to their staff. In between there has been the usual stuff, like walking the kids to school, going to the market, cooking, hanging laundry out to dry, playing tennis, mountain biking, and birthday parties. Our most recent adventure happened today, in the midst of a 3 day trek we had to change plans because of an unfortunate gastritis bug that took some kids down. I returned to Urubamba while Jeff and Charlie trekked on. Hopefully they will appear tomorrow in the rendezvous spot. Such is life in Urubamba. . . you never know what is going to happen next. Last week the whole country shut down because of a protest against a new tax on gasoline. On the other hand, we are surrounded but the most beautiful blue skies, majestic mountains, and really wonderful people. So I guess we will just keep rolling with it. More to come soon.

  1. No lie: I was thinking about you and checked the site about an hour and a half ago, hoping I hadn’t missed a post. Great to hear the adventure update!
