Jerome and Amy in Peru
Honeymoon trip to Peru.
We arrived at 10:30 pm to throngs of people at the gate. Boris, our Croatian-Peruvian surfer escort, was surprisingly easy to spot in the crowd. His expert navigation got us through the darkened, narrow streets of Lima, all in the style of a Russian spy novel. Let the Adventure [Life] begin!
We flew to Cusco and then had a spectacular drive to Ollantaytambo, feeling a bit of the altitude on the higher passes. We walked around town a bit and had many kids ask us for \"propinas.\" Instead, we danced for them and requested that they give us tips. Many of the buildings were built on Incan foundations made of huge rocks.
We went to Pisac with Marco. There is a great outhouse at the top that we tried out before exploring the ruins. Unbelievable stone work and terraces. We hiked from there down to the market in the town below. On the way back to the hotel, we tried corn and strawberry beer. Very tasty - however Marco recommended that we only have a glass so we …
Mountain Biking & Beauty Contest
We went through the ruins at Ollantaytambo - the ones we could see from our hotel room. We started early before there were a lot of people around. After touring there we went mountain biking up on the high plain to Moray. We toured around Moray which was an Incan agricultural research center, then mountain biked a great trail down to the salt …
To Machu Picchu
We took the train to Aguas Calientes. Very interesting ride along the river. The climate went from dry to tropical along the way. After we checked in to the hotel, we took the bus up to Machu Picchu. It was a perfect day to be there - the weather alternated between clear skys, heavy fog, and rain. It was awesome to see the ruins in different …
In the morning I went on a bird watching tour and Amy went looking at orchids. on the birding tour there were more hummingbirds than I've ever seen and also several birds that were very rare to see. We got on the train back to Ollantaytambo. It was an interesting ride back - the train workers had some sort of fashion show on the way back. It …
We toured the Cathedral, the convent, Saqsawaman ruins, and the caves.
We went to the Inca Museum then the market in San Blas. We got our shoes shined by a couple of kids. We paid them a few dollars but they wouldn't leave us alone so we retreated to the relative safety of Paddy Flaherty's "the highest Irish pub in the world". We had a good time there even though I felt a little guilty not be be out at a …
We flew back to Lima. We toured around Mira Flores and Kennedy Park. Went to the mall on the cliffs. There are great views of the ocean and a museum there we went to.
