Mark and Pat at the ruins of Machu Picchu, Peru. (Pat Ryan)
Our flight from Miami to Lima, the most Colonial city in South America, was uneventful except for taking the shortcut through Atlanta. The logic of this escapes me, but traveling business class made everything easy and comfortable. Upon arrival at midnight, it was a major relief to find our guide, Boris, with a sign "Adventure Life." He quickly got us loaded up and on the road; Lima has more than its fair share of maniacal drivers, even at this late hour. These guys are totally oblivious to turn signals, lands and numerous other traffic-control devices, but Boris managed to deliver us safely to Hotel Faraona.
