I'm making potato pancakes.
Mashed potatos for me.
Ha! Mine is bigger than both of yours together! I will have gnocci and knishes
Oh, you think you have spuds, do you?
This is a spud. It weighs more than I do. It has spudly annexes.
Ah, yeah, that's some tater you have there.
Are you sure that thing is really a potato?
What if it's an alien?
It kind of looks like an alien to me.
Potatos are supposed to be round. Maybe long, but round. That one's got blobs.
It looks like Elvis!
Well, if you turn the lights down, look sideways and squint.
Do you think alien elvis potatos might taste good?
I don't know.
I'm frightened. You remember the one Harold found...
We can always just eat the other ones first.
Yeah; give it a chance to manifest itself.
In the meantime, let's watch Doctor Who.

Hey look, it snowed last night!
Let's build a snowman, quick before it's gone.
Brrr! it's cold out.
My tail is frozen.
It must be forty below!
Went to get a scarf.
What's a little cold?
Wait for me, guys!
He looks ridiculous.
Like some frail San Diegan, all wrapped in wool.
Looks warm, though.
I can see the use of a scarf.
Yeah, not so bad.
Um, I can't get my paws out to build that snowman.
My tail is still frozen.
Well tuck it in.
I think there's hot chocolate in the kitchen.
Ah! now there's the life!
My buns are hot.
Oh, you think!
I'm an entirely hot Bun.

I'm in Lima!
As soon as I work myself free of the architectural details, I'm heading to the 1st International Congres on Breast and Colorectal Cancer in Peru.
At the 1st ICBCCP, with Esteemed Colleagues Eva and Jenny.
We are working hard. Really! We have badges and everything.
Here I am chairing the Coffee Break Session, with Alexandra, Nancy, Professor Dominguez, Mom Dominguez, Mev, Mabel, and Jean-Baptiste (who does not, thankfully, have a dog).
Mom makes really good dinners!
Michel and family, my generous Chief of Transportation. Thanks for getting us on the right buses!

After Cuzco we explored another archeological site: Caral.
Caral is all the rage now. It's too recently discovered to be in all the guidebooks, so only people who know go there. Nancy and I now belong to this elite.
I'm glad we have a guide to the ruins, because otherwise I wouldn't make head nor cottontails of what's what. This is the town clock, apparently.
And that's me & Nance, in front of some other significant item. It's remarkably round, is all I know.

Now there's Peru for you. High plains with snowcapped mountains in the distance.
It's a fun ruin, but the steps are for giants!
Salt mines; got your salt mines.
And roast guinea pig! Very tasty, and only slightly cannibalistic.
