SAN ANTONIO, SAN MARTIN - PERU
A PIECE OF HEAVEN ON EARTH IN MY OPINION . . AND OH HOW I WISH I HAD A LITTLE RETREAT HOUSE AND GARDEN HERE

BELOW IS THE ENTRANCE TO SAN ANTONIO. YOU CAN ONLY GET TO THIS TOWN BY FOOT ON THIS SWAYING BRIDGE. BELOW THE BRIDGE IS THE RIVER "RIO CUMBAZA".
ABOVE IN THE RIGHT BOTTOM CORNER OF THIS PICTURE YOU CAN SEE THE FOUNDATION STRUCTURE THAT KEEPS THE BRIDGE IN PLACE

BELOW PICTURES OF THE RIVER
PICTURE  TO THE LEFT
IT IS HARD TO SEE IN THIS PICTURE BUT THERE IS A VERY HUGE MOUNTAIN IN THE NEAR DISTANCE WHICH HAS A WATER FALL THAT FEEDS THIS RIVER
PICTURE  TO THE RIGHT
HERE IN SAN ANTONIO THE PEOPLE GROW  GRAPES AND TUMBO WHICH IS GROWN IN THE SAME WAY THAT GRAPES ARE GROWN - ON A VINE. AMELIA (IN THE PHOTO) A FRIEND FROM LIMA WAS WITH ME, SHE HAS 2 TUMBOS RIPE IN HER ARMS AND TOUCHING ONE FROM THE VINE IN HER RIGHT HAND. THIS FRUIT MAKES A GREAT FRUIT JUICE, NOT TOO SWEET, NOT TOO SOUR BUT JUST RIGHT!
