Flying and flying and flying ... oh yea, and more flying
Missoula to Seattle - 4 hour layover - Seattle to LAX - 7 hours - LAX to Panama City 2 hours - Panama City to Lima
Quick Intro. to Lima
We arrive Lima in the afternoon after an epic 24+ hours of travel. *Important note: For those of you traveling through Panama City...there is a Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville in the airport. I know... so important! We breeze through customs and walk across the street to the Costa Del Sol - Ramada. After a quick fretting up, we head into the …
Checking out Puno
Another early morning wake up to catch a flight to Juliaca. Cross back over the street to check in with Star Peru. Lima airport is a nice airport with shops and some resturants. The regional terminal is packed with excited faces heading off to different adventures in Peru! Not a whole lot of English translation on the plane, didn't realize the …
Wake early pack our stuff into our day packs, check our extra luggage into the hotel storage and eat a nice little breakfast. Our guide arrives and we head out on some TukTuks to the pier. We stop right before the pier to buy some snacks and gifts for our home stay families (FYI buy a little more than you think). We get on our boat and are off to …
Peruvians love volleyball
Woke up and headed to a breakfast of fried quinoa cakes, jam, and cafe con leche. We said some quick goodbyes and headed to shore to board our sail boat. Today's goal was to make it to Amantani Island, but the outlook was grim as we had a steady, strong headwind. The men trade turns rowing - I offered - but was denied. Oh well! We got about …
Flamingos for dinner!
We said our goodbyes to our Amantani family, and headed back to Puno. We made a stop at the Uros floating islands - super cool! It feels like walking on a water bed. They make their islands, houses, boats, handicrafts out of Tatora reed - they even eat it! We tried some it was pretty good, really neat texture. the showed us how the island are …
Onward to Cusco
Today is mostly a travel day - we boarded a comfy bus to head to Cusco. It was great to see more of Peru and see the change in geography. We made a couple of sight seeing stops along the way.
We arrived Cusco late, briefly ran around the Plaza de Armas, picked up dinner and hit the hay!
A day in Cusco
Today is a day for Cusco. What a gorgeous city!
We met up with our guide, Juan Barrios, and the rest of our group and headed out on the town.
Slowly but surely we headed up the hill to sacsayhuaman, some ruins overlooking Cusco. Massive stone, massive walls, but they are seamless. It is an unfinished ruin and what it was meant for is really …
We had an earlier morning start and headed out to the river for a day of rafting. We lucked out with a sunny day, still not warm enough to swim, but not chilly.
After we geared up and had a paddle lesson, we were off! It was nothing crazy, but had some fun rapids to play in, it was nice to be able to sit and take in the scenery we were float in …
