Apropos of Nothing . . .
One of my favorite pictures from my long Foreign Service career.
On the road to Potosi with the kids in my venerable 4X4 Ford Bronco.
It was a grueling trip, but one the kids still talk about lo this many years later. This picture was taken by my wife somewhere on the Altiplano when we stopped to have lunch in the back of the truck . . . hundreds of kilometers of very rough unpaved roads, dry river beds, lots of dust and rocks, and all at an altitude of 10-12,000 feet.
That Bronco never let me down . . . unlike some of my erstwhile colleagues at State . . .
