manu national park – peru

Posted by: samstone @ 11:10 pm

Name = Laura Email = laurafm@me.com Message = Thanks for your email, John. I did leave a third Samstone in Peru – in the southeastern corner of the Manu National Park, just opposite the maccaw clay lick. In the rainy season the land on which I left the stone will become part of the Madre de Dios River. I didn’t get a picture of this one.

Arlanza Valle – Spain

Posted by: samstone @ 9:31 pm



We’ve just come back from a fortnight driving round Northern Spain, staying for 2-4 days in San Sebastian, Pamplona, Lerma (near Burgos) and Vitoria-Gasteiz.

We left a Sam Stone on the roof of a deserted house in the spectacular Arlanza Valley, near Burgos in Spain. Above the roof, you can see large birds of prey flying around. The coordinates are

We left a Sam Stone in the street (the Calle de la Estafeta) in Pamplona through which the running of the bulls takes place every July. Also included is a sculpture of the event, called the Encierro.

This stone was placed just outside of the town of Maras, Peru, which
is nestled in the Andes mountains. I thought Sam would enjoy the view.

Great wall – China

Dear John and Diana, not sure if the upload worked last time, so I
give it another try:
While enjoying a free day during my stay in China in March 2015, two
friendly colleagues took me to the Great Wall at Juyongguan / Juyong
Pass, which used to be a military stronghold north of Beijing
We climbed up a steep part of the Great Wall to the first tower – you
can see it in the picture (the arrow points at it). I found a nice
place for a SamStone in a loophole of the tower. In fact, the SamStone
went down a little slit in the stone so that you can still see it, but
it’s not too obvious. The picture shows the SamStone on top of the
slit. (40Â䓑’12.8″N 116Â䓃’53.3″E or )
By the way, Mao Zedong said who has not been to the Great Wall is not
a good man…well, Sam is there now.

Dear John and Diane, when I was in India in March 2015 – actually for
the first time – I didn’t have much time to see the “real India” …
too much commuting between hotel and office. However, I found a nice
place for a SamStone in a beautiful garden in Bangalore off Mahatma
Gandhi road (12Â䓺’24.7″N 77Â䓥’05.6″E or 12.973533, 77.618225) -
underneath a Frangipani tree. I hope Sam likes it…

Hello! Thanks for the love. I’ve been traveling around South America
for four months- amazing as it is, I miss my family and wish they
could journey with me to see all these beautiful places and God’s
different masterpieces! The most recent beaut I saw was Machu Picchu!
My fiancée, his parents who are currently visiting, and I found a
shady little nook near the ancient water ways and saw the SamStone
placed on a pile of dirt in the corner of a house. Whoop! Instantly it
made me think of my sweet dad, Sam. I figured it wasn’t an ancient
artifact so I pocked it and looked you guys up. Amazing to find such a
special mission in a stone so far from home. I plan to give it to my
dad for Christmas and let him pass it on whenever he feels or maybe
when he visits his home in Egypt. Your mission of love is traveling
all over the world and I’m so glad to be a part of it. Here’s to Sam.
Have a great day!
