I am in South America, in Peru - at the present in Cusco but a few days ago I was wondering around in the capital Lima with my friend Anna, who is part of the very beginning and the very end of this magnificent 10 week adventure. It is thanks to Anna and her husband who grew up in Peru and their encouragement to go and visit the highlands and experience the highland culture that I am here - a culture which includes ....of course weaving, lots of fibre, lots of hardship, lots of beauty, lots of colours, music, lots of ancient culture which is the foundation for what is lived and seen today.
