Hello William, another great food post, I really enjoy them, they are very good, complete, not lacking, a full story. Many food blog post or pages just show the food, and say, I liked this. Nice to read well thought out ones stories. I would appreciate if you would post on the Peru Food link on, not you can put up five links on the whole site, and if you wish I can open it for many from your email address. Peru Foods

Hello Andy, I bet you are happy to be in Thailand after all that time in Africa. Some Thai food would sure taste good right now. Thanks, I will go to Peru Foods and make a post later today. I am sure our friends will be interested to learn about that link also.

Hi Dottie, Marmelita, and Judy have experimented with several new recipes to make sure we stay excited about the food on your expedition to Pacaya Samiria National Reserve.

Can’t wait! Thane should arrive in Iquitos on March 11 and we’ll still be in Yanamono then. He’ll have your email and address if he has any problems/questions.
