I am both Peruvian and Belgian. I love Belgian beer and the high Andes (as a sight not to
climb) The highest mountain in Per
ú is the Huascaran (6768 mt about 18,000 ft) and today my wife and older son are very close to it. Make up your minds and come down and see it.
If you don't enjoy the beers from the Belgian Trappist Monks, you have a dead palate.
Besides, drinking is fun...or at least as seen on this sign photoed on Caye Chaulker, a tiny coral atoll 15 miles of the coast of southern Belize, POP
[See first photo below]
Hoo Haa! Ain't that grand...and I give you joy
! You certainly won't find an advertisement like this in the USA or Europe, either. But I give them 4 stars for honesty.
And speaking of drinking....
Just a few months back, (stay with me, now) Sheri and I scuba-dived on Grand Turk, a smallish island in the British West
2,300. One day, we dived off the coast of an even smaller island, Salt Caye, POP
74. After our two dives, we lunched in the only open restaurant/bar on the island. The proprietor challenged me, or anyone else, to take a shot of all five of his
various animal-named brews...and still
Well! Not being one too let the USA down, I went for it, dispite Sheri's misgivings...and that's not a good
thing, trust me.
Here's pix of my third drink.

DOH! Happy, happy Kevin!
Here's my souvinier...Wolf!

And last but not least, here's a photo of Sheri (SWMBO) having fun sitting on the double-headed Jaguar throne of the ruling lord of Uxmal, located before the House of the Govenors, Yucatan, Mexico
[See fifth photo below]
The interesting thing about this throne is that it was not discovered "in situe", rather it was returned to the surface from where it had
been inturned 500 years in the past by two of the most colorful and insiteful explorers that you could ask for - Stephens and Catherwood (God bless them both!), circa 1840.
