After the lecture, my friend returned to his regular job: cut the grass. Or as they say in French: "mow de lawn."

Thanks, Ted.
Good point. I'm about 90% sure.
Alpacas look similar to llamas, but seem to have much shorter ears.
In researching llamas a couple days ago, a problem I had was most of the pics I found on the net were of US animals, which involved breeding programs. They all seemed to look different.
So I'm going with llama for this guy. At 9-1 odds .

Thees looks mahvelous...oh that was Fernando Lamas or was it Ricardo Montalban (sort of like llamas and alpacas eh?)...never mind...super shot Charlie...maybe they ran out of saw horses to block the path so tourists don't fly over the edge and use saw llamas instead...just a thought

I figured you were, Ted, but the "question" raised a point that I needed to mention. Also, llamas look different depending on how close it is to shearing time. My llama seemed very thick-furred to me- but I'm a city boy; what the hell do I know about shearing time for Peruvian llamas? .

Thanks, Eric. Fernando Lamas seemed to have a near-lisp when speaking English- and he made me laugh every time he whispered "sweet nothings" to movie actresses.
Ricardo Montalban hawked Chrysler Cordobas because of their "Corinthian leather." This also cracked me up: Montalban was born in Mexico, Chrysler was an American company, Cordoba is a city in Spain, and Corinth is in Greece. Even in the 70s, ChryCo had identity problems.

Llamas in Machu Picchu are so unafraid of people that they are inclined to push tourists over the edge as they (the llamas) graze- rather than save them (the people) from falling .

Thanks Conrad, Ken and Chris.
I've seen many of the sites of the world's ancient civilizations: Egypt, Cambodia, Italy, Greece, etc, and none impressed me more than Peru's Machu Picchu.
I didn't find the llama's great setting- he found it all by himself .

Jolly good of you to comment, Tom, Morris, Ron, John and Jason. Thanks.
Finding fine fellow Fernando lama llama wandering among the ruins was a happy bonus. And you know the old expression: "When you are given sweets- don't make lemonade." Well, it's something like that .
