Hear This.




This was filmed in Peru on a mountain top. Beautiful.  Enjoy this video and the sounds of the Dirty Projectors. They have some amazing harmony going on between the three females and three males in the group.


I made my journey on the 16 hour bus ride, which turned into a 20 hours, to Tarapoto, where we stayed at a hostal for the night. We got up at 3:30Am to make our boat ride from Yurimaguas to Iquitos. Tarapoto was beautiful and an expected stop for us. We enjoyed the artisan market, where I bought even more feather earrings! We went to a gorgeous waterfall and had a refreshing swim. We also visited a lovely little laguna where I met a very friendly monkey. He got a little too friendly and ended up licking my shoulder profusely and I had to pry him off of me.


The boat ride was gratifying and humbling. We met some fabulous friends from all over the world. There is so much to say but I need to think about how and what to share. So I leave you with this and stay tuned for more details and pictures. I am off to the zoo (to hopefully hold a sloth) and to get some descent grub.
