Inside-Peru Newsletter, Issue #006 -- Winter in Peru
July 12, 2010

Hello



What is winter like in Peru? Varied!

Just like everything else about this interesting and entertaining country.David and Lin Schneider

Here on the northern beaches, it has gotten cold.

At least that's what are local friends are telling is. Any sickness is now due to the "cambio en clima."

Eating a great bakery in Talara on Saturday, we as usual were entertained by the people coming in and out.

A young mother came in with her kids. Her little girl had a jacket and mittens on. Her little boy had a sweater and a stocking cap pulled over her ears.

Cold? Yes, the temperature had dropped to the LOW 70's!!!
