A tree of a different color

These awesome trees at the end of my driveway.  They look like they have been painted, but really as the bark peels new colors are revealed.  So cool.
Well folks, a friend was kind enough to let me borrow her camera and finally, here are some shots... I am having a real problem setting up the photos so there is no real order to them.  I apologize, but now you can see a bit of what I see along this journey.  So here you are, a few shots of Alto Varas.
My host nephew and student showing off a massive ant.  He was really proud and then proceeded to kill the ant to make sure that I could get a good photo...  A bit of a surprise.
This is a typical breakfast in my village.  Rice and beans, coffee, milk fresh from the cow and cheese and crakers or bread.  My Mom calls this a "light" meal.  I have convinced her that fruit is a more successful start for my stomach. 
Many a cow in my village, many a cow.
The view from one of my walks.
This is my school.  Awww, it's cute.
Another tree I like.  Ah, trees.
