Home, Sweet Home

The emergency situation continues in the Sacred Valley, with two of the three vehicle bridges collapsed. As it stands now, all of the Pisac-based volunteers will be living in Cusco during the week and making the long trip home (via Chinchero and Urubamba) on weekends. It´s less convenient in some ways, but it´s better than driving treacherous mountain roads early every morning to get to work.

Here, by the way, is the collapsed bridge in Pisac (click for a larger view). The one in Ollantaytambo is just as bad.

Many of you have requested photos of my home in Pisac. This is the view of the house when you enter the front gate. The kitchen is through the door on the right, and the bedrooms are upstairs.
This is the kitchen and living room.
This is my bedroom -- quite large, but I could really use a chest of drawers!
And, finally, the infamous bucket shower. After three weeks, it doesn´t even seem that strange.
