This book is about traveling for 15-days in March through Chile, Argentina, and Brazil with 32 couples from Canada, the USA, via buses and six airplane connections with smarTours and guide Zuny Caceres. The pictures are candid as the various events pass before our eyes, and I recorded over 1,500 images, that has been edited down to 121 photos over 100 pages. It features Valparaiso, the Chilean seaport city whose hilltops have burst into flame on April 12, killing more than a dozen people, and burning down more than 500 homes the last I heard, See the pictures from this city, and the panoramic 20-inch wide town scene I added to this edition.

I was a news photographer and picture editor for seven newspapers, and member of the National Press Photographers Assc. since 1956. A Life Member of the San Francisco Bay Area Press Photographers Association, after being the Picture Editor at The Sacramento (CA) Union (1968-89), New York Newsday (1989-94), and Contra Costa Times (1994-96) when I retired after 40-years in the newspaper business - starting as a shooter since 1956. I'm retired but still shoot and actively travel today for my own interest. The assorted books have turned out to be a way to gather many of my images for nice and simple presentations.

Actually not "32 couples," but 16 couples, 32 people. My try to correct that just won't take the "fix" in the book information piece.
