Inside-Peru Newsletter, Issue #017 - Summer Fun
August 02, 2012

Hello



Lin_and_David
We hope everything is moving right along the way it should be in your neck of the woods.

Have you noticed a difference in the look of Inside-Peru? Well there are no BIG changes, but we have a new logo and are working on our header and also looking into making navigation of the site easier.

Summer

Lin and I have been busy here with lots of different things with summer here in the Northern Hemisphere. Those of you in the Southern Hemisphere, or Down Under, are working your way through the regular work or school year.

For us, though, right now we are in the State of Washington, Pacific Northwest of the United States.

Summer is here is the time of year for selling real estate. Why? Sun! Everything looks green, forested, and beautiful.

So people want to move here. However... Then winter comes with those really short dark days, rain, clouds, cold, misery.

Lin and I made it through one winter here and are now enjoying the few somewhat warm days here, the beaches, and of course the beautiful scenery.

But we are glad we're headed for Peru before the cold and dismal days come again!



Here's what you will find in this newsletter:


The Inside-Peru Photo Contest

In our ongoing contest, the past month of July was a little slim. As we see every year, the summer months are the slowest for Inside-Peru online visitors. Most people are busy with summer activities and most travel to Peru is in the winter time (northern hemisphere).

The winner of the photo contest was this nice photo submitted by by Connie Homecat of Hong Kong:

Lively folks! - July 2012 Peru Photo Contest

Connie entitled her photo "Lively Folks" and it sure did reflect the colors and swirling dances typical of a Peruvian festival.

Congratulations, Connie! Your photo will be on the front page and many other pages of Inside-Peru for the month of August.

Be sure and let me know if you would like the photo linked to a blog or web page of your choice.

By late July, state-owned miner Chinalco says it will finish building a new city of paved roads and multi-story homes for 5,000 people currently living on the side of a giant red mountain of copper 15,000 feet above sea level.

Residents from the poor, ramshackle...
