This fish later became our ceviche, a raw seafood dish mixed with citrus and other seasonings.

The microbio lab at the Universidad Nacional del Altiplano. I helped them design some experiments and gave a conference over the stomach bacteria H. pylori, a focus of my undergraduate research.
A childrens´ book in Aymara. I could barely read a thing.
And more Aymara...
And more Aymara.
That fish from before? This is what became of it, a delicious dish of ceviche.
I used this list to help in learning the pronunciation of the Aymara alphabet.
And example of the Subject-Object-Verb order in Aymara, different than the SVO order in English and Spanish.
The Aymara pronouns. There is an interesting fourth person case, and it gets even more interesting in the plural.
A handful of Aymara consonants have a sort of oral progression in pronunciation. Here is shown \"ch\" (which is pronounced like a normal \"ch\"), the \"chh\" (which is pronounced like \"ch\" but farther back in the throat), and \"ch´\" (which is like a \"ch\" but pressure is built up behind the tongue before enunciating and then released, making a clicking noise). My mouth hurt after every lesson for a while, and it´s still hard to pronounce the consonants with the apostrophe after them.
A view of Puno.

Ty,

That was jaw dropping! Looks like you are having a blast. Are all the GREAT pics and videos being taken on the Canon SD1000? They look fantastic.

Love Dad

Two years ago I danced as a china with the group from Morenada Galeno. I had arrived only the night before and was most definitely not ready for those shoes - but it was amongst the most amazing experiences I've ever had.

Your pictures are beautiful and the shots are really great at capturing some of the movement and excitement of the feast!
