I woke at 4 am for our early flight to Lima via Salt Lake and Atlanta. We didn't know it yet, but this would be the start of many pre-dawn departures so it was good to get prepared from the start. The flight went smoothly for a change- no missed connections and our bags were even waiting for us when we arrived in Lima- what a treat after our last experience flying to South America! Again, we were thankful to have someone waiting for us at the airport. By this time we were both too exhausted to haggle with a taxi driver and welcomed the friendly stranger who met us with a sign and a waiting van.
