Agua o muerte! (Water or die!)
Anjanette and the children have stayed home during the strikes these photos were taken by Ellen a friend of ours.
For as long as we can remember there have been protests and disruption over the issue of the government diverting water from Cusco to Arequipa and periodically there are strikes and protests.
This week there is a 2 day strike so schools and universities are shut and there are few cars on the roads and there have unfortunately been reports of violence and injury.
Today Scott had to walk to the airport since there were rocks and broken glass on the roads and the army were escorting people in and out of the airport , thankfully he made it safely!
Today he travels to Iquitos where he is leading a youth ministry seminar, hopefully there will be some jungle tales and photos to publish on the blog when he's back in Cusco in a few days.....
