Not for Monty Python´s Ministry of Silly Walks

The Peruvian Paso Horse (in Spanish, caballo peruano de paso) does have a special walk, or gait, but is not at all silly and, thus, would not be elegible for a subsidy from Monty Python´s Ministry.
The Paso Horse is a special breed of horse, descendand from the horses that the Conquistadores brought over from Spain - mainly from Andalusia - in the 16th century. What makes it special is its smooth ride as a result of its particular ambling gait. The video below was taken at Hacienda Los Ficus, just outside Lima., where you can watch a show, which includes the typical Marinera dance of Peru and also lunch.

Rock n Roll, ribs and a beer in Florida with...Iron Maiden!!

If you happen to be in Coral Springs in Florida and fancy some ribs, you may want to consider Rock n Roll Ribs, owned by Nicko McBrain, yes, the drummer of the heavy metal band, Iron Maiden. They even have their own label beer with the brand name Trooper. Enjoy!!

Special Baggage travels to Mars!!

Well, not quite but, from the two pics below, can you pick out NASA`s photograph of the Mars surface, taken in August 2017 by its Curiosity Mars rover?



The answer is in the following slideshow of pics taken in Cieneguilla, about 25 Kms. east of Lima in Peru, which is where we actually travelled. A Mars like scenery, where you can observe the resilience of Tillandsias or Air Plants.
