Happy Birthday Anna-Monika!


It’s been four enjoyable years with Anna-Monika in our house! She was so small when we first saw her and now she is 18 years old. In 3 months she will be graduating from CDL and we will miss her!

Happy Birthday Anna-Monika! We wish you all the best!

#18 PERU

Did you know that Peru is one of the most diverse countries in the world? — And that’s a fact. Home to 84 out of the 117 ‘life zones’ existing on earth and 28 of the 32 different types of weather there is no better place to experience the wonders Mother Nature has thrown our way.Peru_llama_post_620

The city of Machu Picchu, one of the most famous landmarks in Peru, was voted in 2007 as one of the New Seven Wonders of the World.

And did you know that Lake Titicaca located along Peru’s border with Bolivia is the largest lake in South America? It is also the highest navigable lake in the world with a surface elevation of 3,812 meters.
