This was the last photo I took on the island but it really says a lot about the whole experience. The woman on the left is Marylou who was our "Mama" for our stay in her home. I think the lady on the right is her mother but can't be sure. These two ladies fed us and saw after our needs while we were guests in their home. When I told them I wanted to take a picture of them the older lady quickly ran and got her good dress for the photo. The other one was her housework dress and was not clean enough for a photo. The thing that was really impressive about this experience was that these folks seems to genuinely get a kick out of having travelers from other places as their guests. Their hospitality was genuine even though it was very obvious that they needed the money. We signed the log book they maintain for the Peruvian department of tourism and out of about 150 entries we were only the second americans to sign it. The French were in the majority.
