My last posts have illicited a number of thoughtful, sensitive, comments. I offer flowers from Bolivia to all of you who have been following this blog and, especially to those who have been willing to share their opinions. I wish you all the best today in your endeavor to find your way through this complicated life.
I am no botanist, but I am told that the flowers in the last picture are called carnivale.
They start blossoming in late January and usher in the holiday by that name, which is so important in this part of the world.
The top two photos were shot on an island in the middle of Lake Titicaca on my second day here. Diverse ecosystems abound, varying from almost barren deserts to lush tropical rainforests, consequently the markets are filled with an abundant variety of fruits, vegetables and exotic plants.
Seeing this beauty and sharing it in words and picture with you is a key component of my pleasure on this adventure.
