Here we are in the Valley of Longevity. This town of Vilcabamba had a reputation of having an unusually high number of octogenarians. As researchers moved in and started..well.. researching… it seems that it actually has an unusually high number of people lying about their age! Oh well, I am very happy to be spending March here 3000 ft. lower in altitude and in an apartment surrounded my mountains with a view out every window.. sigh. Oh, and birds and hiking… another sigh of contentment.
Yesterday was our first day of waking up to the mountain views so of course I ran around taking pics…
DH searching for birds off the balcony before breakfast.. and he denies being a birder!
Our digs….and views from our digs the first morning..
The house next door has a driveway lined with poinsettia trees (shrubs?)
A walk to town after breakfast…. 5 min. going down a long hill and 5 hrs. coming back with packs full of groceries. You can allow a little for exaggeration. These folks figured out a better way to take that hill!!
If you are old and decrepit (worn out or ruined because of age or neglect), look out! I will take photos of you. You are safe for now because I found these doors….
A couple of those fictional octogenarians…
What a lot of work went into this wall art..
Coffee beans drying..
Fresh juice heading your way…such entrepreneurs!
Until next time…
