Here's some pictures of our horse, nicknamed Horsey, looking in the kitchen window to see if there's anything good to eat.  She likes to watch the fruits and vegetables on the counters just in case any of them want to jump into her mouth.  She gets to roam free a lot of the time.  In the pictures she's wet from a recent rainstorm, and thunder rolled in the distance as I took the pictures.

In the background of the first picture you can see the wood shed where I lived for a year while we were building the retreat center.  I think I liked it more then, with no electricity other than an occasional run of the generator, almost no internet, and having to go down to the spring to fill up a water bottle from the bucket in the spring.

Yesterday morning Horsey was out bright and early because it was raining too hard the night before to get motivated to put her in her ten acre enclosure.  She got really frisky and went running up and down the road over and over, running way down the road and then racing back at full speed, which is a beautiful sight to see.  When she got to the house she would come to a screeching halt, making long skid marks/ruts in the wet lawn with her front feet, and then go racing back down the road again.  So the lawn isn't such a beautiful sight to see right now, but it heals fast.   :)

She might be practicing to out-run a jaguar.

It is debated whether this is natural or manmade.  They say it's part of a giant temple area in a very remote place.

Do you think this is a one root civilization or just very similar pictures among many many different ones?
There are many discussions whether ancient people had advanced knowledge an technology but the evident answers have not come yet.

Cool stuff. Thank you.

Is there any estimated time frame for the two pics?
No worries... I am only speaking on my own authority.

The evidence is clear for those who wish to see.  There was an advanced civilization, more advanced than what we have now.  The similarities of the evidence left behind indicates that they existed in several places around the world, and these advanced technological civilizations existed before the Inca and Egyptian empires did.  I will provide some convincing video evidence.

That is definitly a fact. Mummies from Egypt have found to contain cocaine and nicotine, 2 substances found in plants originating in the America's.

Well, technically, nicotine comes in trace amounts in other plants also, all over the world, but cocaine, that's a crazy one to explain.

But first ...

 

My best student from Seattle and her student have come to visit for awhile and today we went up to the continental divide, the crest of the Andes mountain range, which you can see from here and is a pretty short drive.  We drove to the top of the local highest peak, which you can also see from here, to around 12000 ft altitude, on the only road in Ecuador that goes nowhere, because there used to be a radar installation on the mountain top.  The radar was put up there during the war with Peru, when Peru invaded and took a big chunk of the Amazon from Ecuador.

 

The Andes mountains are low here because the Amazon river used to flow to the Pacific through this area before and while the Andes mountain were rising.  I just wanted to share a few pictures of what it's like on the way up.

That's me, your rusty trusty chi kung teacher.  Since it's almost always raining there are many little waterfalls near the top.

This is at the top of the continental divide, where it's almost constantly cloudy and almost always raining, the Amazon basin is on the right.  This time it was hardly raining.

I saw a doc on Nat Geographic, or Discovery, don't really matter, but it came down to the very fact, that what they discovered is not possible with the material we have today to cut stone like that.
