Lima has a museum that has a wing dedicated to sexually explicit pottery from the days of old.
So, of course, I'll just go ahead and post those...then Our TS can ban me for posting explicit images!
Umm, I think not...especially considereing my favorite image, which will not be named here in public. (I told you that one, right?)

Sir, You have visited the Museo...so feel free to post any photos you may have?

I'm a bit disappointed that I didn't have time to visit the museum while I was in Peru (out of our month there, we only had part of a day in Lima)

Greetings to all. I took a ton of pic's while in Peru, and wanted to share some of the diversity I tried to capture while visiting this beautiful country.

Actually Sir, I did encouter various menu items that would never thought possible for human consumption.

Instead, I prepared many "American" meals in the kichen for my hosts...Pancakes, bacon and eggs, steak and potatoes etc...I think they liked it?

Peru is a great country. I've been there many times and was down in November visiting with the PNP and also doing our thing in the jungle. Will be back in July and again in October.

SL is kicking back up a bit from all the reports we've gotten. I just did an article for Serviam Magazine on this very issue. For the most part though, if you stay clear of the Huanuco, Tingo Maria regions to the north of Lima and a few place south then everything seems to be ok.

Stay safe!

OMG,

There has been a natural disaster in Peru, in the form of massive mudslides!!!


My friends in Lima that live in the suburbs of Molina and other places are okay, but OMG, the flooding is incredible and so fast


Hope Our guys down there are 5x5.
