Peru or Bust, one couple's journey to represent USA abroad and aid in ways small and large.

If you are bored with this site, it's not my fault.

Pumahermana, Ocol, San Jose..

with one comment

Three towns within the heart of Palm country out along the Chachapoyas-Mendoza highway.  Also, all within our municipality of Molinopampa.  As any Peruvian would explain, the country is broken up into 24 departments (states) and we live within Amazonas.  Our department is broken up into 7 provinces and we live within Chachapoyas province.  Our province has 21 districts (or municipalities) and we live in the capital of one of the larger ones…Molinopampa.  Within this district there are other localities or annexes…Pumahermana, Ocol, and San Jose are some of them and pretty darn nice, though still developing infrastructure.  Visited houses today to collect info for potential future projects.
