This Peruvian national reserve is a sanctuary for vicuñas (camelids, like llamas and alpacas) which are apparently threatened in Peru, possibly due to over-hunting.  (My español is a bit lacking.)  It’s way up in the Andes, close to, um, nothing as far as I can tell.  About halfway as the crow flies between Lima and La Paz.

Gorgeous, huh?

I was hurting for a blog topic tonight and found the coolest feature on random.org.    It will give you random geographic coordinates, and show them on Google Maps.  So, what the heck, I thought, let’s find out what I’m going to blog about! This may become a regular feature, because it’s so damn cool.
