Market Day in Urubamba, Peru, 1975

Urubamba Market Day 1976.

My heart beat faster then, not only from the thin air,
but from the edge of each day’s living. I can feel
the sharp gravel underfoot through my thin gym shoes,
I can taste the dust in that thin air, I know I was
looking for a cup of mate, almost forty years ago.
