Ok, this is for real. I’m actually posting pictures this time. I’ve got a lot to share, so bear with me. We’ll start with Peru!
all of girls in our groups on the tour of the mud city, Chan Chan.
On the beach in Trujillo. I don’t know why Jason has the Augie “A”, but it certainly spices up the picture!
After we planted trees in the Sacred Valley in Peru, we gave thanks to Pacha Mama
After waking up way too early to climb up a mountain, we made it to Machupicchu!
The reason we got there so early was to secure our ticket to the top of Huayna Picchu. After all of that hiking, I was glad to relax a little at the top!
We miss you, Kennen!
It’s the day after we climbed Machupiccu and Huayna Picchu and my legs are still aching from the morning before. That doesn’t stop Nichole B. and I from climbing another mountain the very next morning! May I present: the way up Putucusi
We got to the rainforest and Surprise! It started raining on our walk to the lodge
The aftermath of our walk. My clothes never did fully dry.
Rafting to our second lodge in Manu
On our way back to Cusco, we stopped on the side of the road for a lunch break. What we thought were tamales wrapped in banana leaves, turned out to be chicken and rice
The city streets of Lima
These are the catacombs under the cathedral in Lima. The archeologists who found the bones, arranged them in this pretty little pattern
And now, Mexico!
This is the alter in the front of the cathedral in Cuernavaca. Last Sunday I attended the Pan american mass and heard the mariachi band and listened to the Bishop give the lesson. I even got to shake his hand!
Frida’s horse in Diego’s mural in Cortez’s Palace
I’m the tiny figure sitting at the top of some steps at Teotihuacan
It was very windy atop the Temple of the Sun
This is a statue of Emiliano Zapata and his horse at the place where he was killed. If you look very closely, you can see the bullet holes in the wall in the background.
