uffaaaa...we say in italian...that means more or less auch! what a pity!
I have learned a lot... travelling with Joan and my bogger friends made my see these countrys with different eyes. all very interesting, thank's a lot for all information!! :)
in this last period I'm quite interested in geology..it is necessary beacuse of my job,
guiding..you always find people that want's to know how old the Garda Lake is, how old are the mountains surrounding the lake..and so on.
so I extend my studies to geology of Peru.. :)
did you no that the mountains in Peru touches hights over 6000mt?
that they are very very old...existing since the Paleozoic era (primary era) (570 - 245 million years ago)
to make you understand the Mount Baldo (2218 mt) was "born" in the Cenozoic era (65milliom to 1.6millions years ago
(cenozico comes from the greek and means recent life - kainos/recent- zoè/life)
all along the cost side from Bolivia till almost the end of Chile, it is on a fault line, still moving.
that means this part, will in a future detach from the main continent..
if you look on a geological map (will add the photo tomorro) you clearly see the fault line.
another thing I've learned about Peru (this is to get back to the recipes :))) )
is one of the major producers of artichokes in the world!!
but the funny thing is that I didn't any recipes with articokes!
for this stop i made two dishes..actually they should have been three,
but I burned the beans for the dessert :(silly me!!
