After several years of thinking and saying that I should do something about my old color slides that are only gathering dust in a corner, I finally did it: I sent a few hundred old pictures to Scancafe to have them scanned. It takes quite a bit of time to get the scans back, but it's worth it. The quality is better than I expected, and even if I had somehow access to the right kind of scanner (the average scanner just won't do it), I would have spent many hours doing this.
So I got the DVD today from Scancafe, and I keep looking at these pictures from Peru, taken during five weeks of field work in the Talara Basin, I think seven years ago, followed by a week of vacation in Cusco and Machu Picchu. They are either very good, or I had too much of a good time.
In either case, I've got to go back.
