Grandma's Travel Blog

Posted by Marco Antonio Mendoza Thursday, December 24, 2009

For the past few days I have been traveling and touring the city with my family from Portland, Oregon who have come to Peru for their Christmas vacation.  It has been great to be around familiar faces and hear old childhood stories because I know that soon they will be on their way back home.

Since she arrived in Lima, my grandmother has been hard at work as an overseas news correspondent for her friends and family back home.  She spends a few hours each day diligently working on articles based around her travels in Peru.  When she is in the field she is hard at work documenting each moment and activity with her trusty kodak camera (she takes both video and photo).   Her blog is a keyhole to those interested in her journey to a land abroad, a place of wonder and growing popularity in America's contemporary culture. 

I have visited her site many times and I smile each time I read her articles, each one is filled with her accounts of her time spent in Lima and in Peru.  As I assist her with the technical aspects of blogging and the internet, I am amazed and convinced that age holds to no bounds on modern technology.  As I watch her continue to work on her blog project I am inspired to continue mastering the craft myself (I have a long ways to go). 

For those of you who are interested I encourage you to take a minute and check out her blog. 

Here is the link to her site: LINK
