Title: Peru Lumber Yard - Pictures
Post by: Mark M on November 16, 2004, 08:43:28 AM
This past August I spent some more time working in Peru. Here are a few pictures I took of what I'm calling a "lumber yard". Not many boards but lots of poles and firewood. In Lima there were a number of shops selling boards and flooring. Their products were displayed out front leaning up against the stores. Next time I got there I'll try to get some pictures. They had some woods that don't grow around here.

Wow, I started poking around your other photos from your link. The Munich, Salzburg links caught my attention. The wife and I took a few backpacks and lived on the trains over there for our honeymoon. The castle photo you took is great. I still remember the hike up to it. This is the one I'm refering to.

Hi Sawwood

Yep that's a pretty neat place, lots of castles along the Reine. You know you can usually get a round trip ticket to Frankfurt about this time of the year for around $350. Most I ever had to spend was $500 and that was in the spring. The small hotels run around $50 and include a good breakfast, bed and breakfast is about $20 per person. The Post Hotel in Rudesheim is very good. Early December is a great time to go because of the Christmas markets.

Here is a good link: Ruedesheim (http://www.ruedesheim.de/)



Hope you can make the trip.

Mark

That yard reminds me of Mr Watson's. He's nearly 80 and goes to the woodlot every day picking up wood with his pickup and block and tackle. His yard has poles, 4-foot pulp, stovewood and lumber. Your choice. Just bring a full wallet. ;D

Oops , now where talking castles.

There is a castle near here, the Lewis family owned. They've all passed on now including their son. It was mainly a 'citade' (well not a strong hold)l on the side of a big house. Has a spiral staircase and chandelere from the ceiling, sits on a hillside. Takes two furnaces running full time to heat the monstrosity.

Interesting post as my wife is from Lima. They just featured Peru on the TV in the amazing race. Think I could make some money there with my sawmill ?

I'm not sure what they use them for, I've seen some small buildings built with poles but they were bigger.

Russ does your wife go back to Peru? I really like the food down there and am hoping to make another trip soon. I got word from my friend today that one of the mining companies is evaluating a proposal for a custom database I make and it it get approved I'll be heading south again.

No it she doesn't like leaving us behind. Some day when I can get a ticket for 4 I'll take her down. We have a few pets to farm out , She's got a african grey  thats like a baby to her. When  her brother goes down there he likes to act like a rich american,  The folks might expect us to have $100 bills falling out of our pockets, can't play that part. If you  visit Lima I'll ship you some maple Syrup to give to her mom, they love it. Just one warning she doesn't speak english.
