About Perú: Perú is a fascinating country with a variety of marvelous landscapes, interesting people and ethnic groups, and unique history. I hope that when I’ve completed this thing I’ll have managed to portray at least a bit of that in an accurate and interesting way.
About Peter [kojin]: I’ve been a New York cabdriver, a newspaperman, a trial lawyer, a photographer, and various other things, and was fortunate enough to spend a little more than six months (from April 11 to October 18, 2008) in Perú, mostly wandering around in a four-wheel-drive car. Early on, I resolved to create some sort of memorialization of the journey, discussing at least briefly all the places we went and illustrating it with photographs, and this is it — though not quite finished yet.
I’m interested in people’s reactions — positive, negative, questioning, correcting, whatever.
One of the other things I sometimes do is poetry. Therefore in a few cases I’ve put some of my observations into that form. (Dawn Among the Vicuna, above, includes several tanka matched with photographs.) https://kojin.wordpress.com/dawn-among-the-vicuna-11-tanka/
