He was about as big as my hand with spread fingers. Those tarantulas aren't very quick... lots of time to set up your shot.

I'll show you some maps soon. Lima has 250 archaeological sites, that is just one of them.

Deecree, archaeological remains are treated the same way here in Galicia.

IMO, those vandals deserve a VERY hefty fine, grrr. By the way, this petroglyph is amazing! It's almost identical to some petroglyphs in the American Southwest - e.g. by the Anasazi and their modern descendants, the Hopi Indians - which are believed to represent tribal migrations.

Edith, all is not lost here in Galicia. Here is a photo of a Celtic Castro (Village) near to us.



Sorry the photo is quite long as we are going to use it for our web site but in hind sight this is too large. I don't have time to play around with this presently.

Very nice. Are you going to display that using a panorama viewer?

This family was evicted from the house (white) they rented so the landlord could build a high-rise. They now live outside in the street and have nowhere to go.

It's hard to believe, but these sturdy little creatures have survived the rain and the cold!
