Peru – Overview (October 2009)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In October 2009, a “historical’ reunion took place: Francis was reunited with Silke and Stefan – approx. one year after having waved good-bye to them when they left Portland, Oregon after 3 amazing weeks with us – they were at our house and Fender was at our shop PDX British.

Here’s the story behind the happy reunion:

Francis and his son Terry recently traveled to Lima, Peru to attend the wedding of Francis’ youngest brother Danny. Silke and Stefan happened to pass through Peru during that very period so they all planned to meet up.

After one week of sight-seeing and partying with Francis and his relatives in Lima - Silke, Stefan, Francis and Terry piled into “Fender” and first drove south-bound to Nazca and then north-east-bound through the Andes to Cuzco, The Sacred Valley of the Incas and Machu Picchu.

After Francis and Terry had said another sad good-bye to Stefan and Silke and left them behind in Cuzco, they drove to Arequipa in order to pick up Stefan’s dad Anton who arrived from Germany.

As you can imagine there are tons of photos and we have uploaded them in batches – please navigate via the categories in the right margin.

We invite you to sit back and enjoy a part of the world which is very special to the Watson family - and now also our beloved friends Stefan and Silke … plus Stefan’s dad Anton.
