Lucho’s brother Jorge gave a design presentation on his long-term large-scale plans to bring hydroelectric power into Chirimoto. The progect involves diverting about half of the Shocol river into a large canal and tunnel on the other side of the valley from the rivers original course, and exploiting the elevation drop between Chirimoto and the neighboring town downstream.

After the presentation, we went to several of the artisan markets in Lima, and walked around the old city.
