100 facts for 100 years of Machu Picchu: Fact 15 - Los Angeles Times

Visual Description:  The entire Andes.

How Travellers Can Help Llamas in Peru

Answer:  RANGE OF TOPICS

(The Andes Mountains cover seven countries along the western portion of South America.  They run from Venezuela all the way down to Argentina, nearly 4350 miles long!  These kids are learning this, and much much more.  A wide gamut of subjects will come into play.  Yep.  The guys gave us another stinky pun.  And, I like it!

They haven’t been able to come up with any new clue words.  But we might just have to face the fact that we’ve exhausted all the five and six letter, singularly spelled – politically correct – clue words.  Three of the jumbles are coming up as new, but we’ve definitely seen “rompit” before.  The answer letter layout was a lofty thirteen letter jumble.  Majestically cryptic!

Another great elementary school classroom cartoon.  I’m seeing pictures of an indigenous Peruvian woman with an ear of corn, some llamas, and one of Machu Picchu.  Hey, the Andes also run through Chile, and today’s Cryptoquote was from a Chilean author.  Nice little coinkydink!  The day is almost over, but I hope that you all bewared the ides of March!  Five days until the start of spring!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Isabel Allende: 'I still have the same rage' | Isabel Allende | The Guardian

Unfortunately for my family, they have a writer in the family.”   —   Isabelle Allende

(Our first quote from the very accomplished Chilean author, here at the Cryptoquote.  This is probably a fairly common sentiment among writers.  No relevant words of wisdom today.  One of my step-sons dated a Chilean girl, pretty seriously for a while.  She was gorgeous!  And her cousin?  My God.  Even more gorgeous!  They must just grow them gorgeous down there!  We welcome Ms. Allende to the Cryptoquote Club today!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
