Tim's continuing obsession with typewriters is bringing him much joy here in Arequipa. In Sept/Oct he was wistfully dreaming of bringing a typewriter with him to Peru. Then, walking down a street one day, we noticed that there were several people sitting on benches with typewriters (typing things). I think people pay them to type stuff up. So Tim started searching for a typewriter here, but all the ones in the store were in bad shape. Lo and behold, in the end, he didn't even have to buy one! The O'Briens have an old manual typewriter in beautiful condition that they are letting him use. I am expecting great novels out of him before we leave Arequipa.
