Installing a Small Playground High in the Andes Mountains

While my grandson Rees and I were in Sacred Valley, Peru, in October 2016, we visited a small primary school high in the Andes.  We promised, in the future, to install playground equipment.  In early December, the Cardenas-Torres family returned to the village of Huancco Pillpinto.

With funding from my family, David C-T and his family, plus their friend John, installed a small swing set and climbing tower.
