Weekly Photo Challenge: Unusual

Day 150 – December 19, 2011

In my best Steve Martin/Navin R. Johnson voice, I say, “The new Photo Challenge is here! The new Photo Challenge is here!”

The topic for this week is “Unusual“.

Here’s the background story. While my sister-in-law was in Lima visiting us, I attempted to take her to the Museo de la Nacion to show her the highlights of Peruvian culture.

One tiny problem. Today was a Monday and the museum is closed on Monday.

Lesson learned – call ahead or look at a website before venturing out.

The day was not a complete loss as she pointed out a building to me and I took the following picture.

Do not adjust the horizontal on your monitor

I guess this is what happens when kids who played Jenga grow up to be architects.
