    Well, the title says all, we just came back from a trip to South America. I took over 1200 pictures, obviously I will not be putting them all,*but here are some that seemed interesting, I hope you like them.

    First a picture of us, myself, my wife Amanda (the red queen) and Eric (Ythier).

    And a few reptiles
