be a sloth, see a sloth, HOLD a sloth!

(me and baby sloth, Maria! just like holding a real live teddy bear!)

I'm back! Peru and the Amazon was fantastic - returned with minimal sunburn and almost NO bug bites - vacation a success! we took over 2500 photos... here are about 60 of my faves (there are 8 sets...use the arrows) We spent half our time on the Amazon river on a boat, and the other half in the city of Iquitos - a very lively,vibrantly colorful city!


  1. amazing pics...looking forward to reading more about your trip.

  2. Wow! I would really like to have some captions for some of the pictures. I am amazed at the colors...beautiful! What kind of camera did you use?

    Welcome home!

  3. Looks like you had an experience of a lifetime! What a great opportunity for the kids.

  4. hello!
    glad you liked the photos – I have about 2500 more! 
    the colors were amazing – just like I like them…. very monochromatic with random pops of color –
    birds, laundry, boats, etc!
    my camera is a canon EOS 350D, with a new zoom lense I just got for my bday! ( a canon 70-300 w/ image stabilizer)
    I honestly have no idea what that all means – but it has been one great camera!

  5. Welcome home!

    Your photos are amazing. I'm blown away. I think you should look into putting them on something like, you'd make a killing.

    LOVE the sloth shot, and the one of it eating the leaf. I love all of your shots.

    What a grand experience for all of you!
