Travel Group: Rick Robertson in Peru & Bolivia (5:00 p.m. - 6:30 p.m.)
Thursday, October 24, 2019, 5:00 PM until 6:30 PM
Rick Robertson (“the computer guy”) will share photos and stories about his recent trip to South America. Rick’s adventure started in Colombia’s gorgeous flower gardens, where Rick met his daughter and her friends, who had just finished their two years in the Peace Corps in Paraguay. Their first stop: the Incan citadel of Machu Picchu in Peru, where they climbed a nearby mountain to better take in the massive agricultural terraces and intricate stone constructions of the mysterious Andean city. Next, they headed to Lake Titicaca on the border of Peru and Bolivia, to visit the ancient indigenous people, the Uros, who have lived on floating islands on the world’s highest lake for centuries, in structures made from the grass that grows in the lake. Last, don’t miss Rick’s take on how locals get around the Bolivian city La Paz, which at 11,975 ft, is the highest capital city in the world. Meet at the home of Joan Doucette and Harry Fisher.
