Installing a Playground High in the Peruvian Andes

On May 5, the Cardenas-Torres family (Andean Quechua World Organization) travelled high into the Andes to install a playground at a village school high in the Andes.  The Peruvian village of  Sipasqanch provides porters for mountaineers from around the world

The C-T family installed a climbing tower, monkey bars, and a swing set.  They got great assistance from the local villagers who helped carry the equipment, assisted with assembly, dug holes, and mixed and placed concrete.

The village children were very cute in their traditional costumes.
