Debbie Jaffe and Oswaldo Sandoval invited their friends to make a journey down to Peru in celebration of their fifth wedding anniversary. About a dozen of us were lucky enough to be able to free ourselves from our other obligations and make the trip.

Contained herein are photos taken with my camera during the trip. Any questions or comments? Please contact me by email or phone (650.996.1553).


P.S. Navigational note. You can click on any enlarged picture to get to the next one, without having to worry about that pesky little right arrow.
