We are looking for more adventurers–CALL members and others– to come forward to stimulate and inspire us with accounts of their treks and travels. If you are interested and would like to know more, please contact Dorothy Whitson, Richard King or Ruth Mauel via e-mail at travel

The presentation will cover my two trips to Peru. I will talk about the dental missions that I helped with in Peru, plus photos of the Inca Trail, Machu Picchu, other travels in Peru. I will also talk briefly about the civilizations of Peru, including the Inca people, their empire, their capabilities, and their limitations.
