FROM PAPUA TO PERU: While visiting his home in Urubamba, Peru, for some much-needed dentistry, Santa Barbaran Craig Harris caught up with a copy of The Santa Barbara Independent and tried to get a few Q’eros interested in some hometown journalism. An inveterate trekker, Craig spent five days circumnavigating Ausangate in the Peruvian Andes. The 46-mile trip led him through the town of Tinque, where he got acclimated to the rarefied atmosphere at 13,000 feet and up, which apparently had everyone puking, from the donkeys toting loads to the hikers from afar. Our unofficial correspondent from far-flung places is already back on the road, this time to West Papua, where he’s been documenting the struggle for independence. Travel safely, Craig.
