And We´re Back

Sorry for the hiatus, but Mel and I have been hiking through the Andes in search of the wonderful Machu Picchu. It was a tremendous four day journey starting in Cusco, ending in the Incan city and we had an amazing time.

Besides the two hour bike ride through torrential downpour down hill on the edge of a cliff, or slipping in bathroom and crushing my shin (no serious injuries ensued). The trip was flawless.

Hours of walking down three-feet-wide Incan steps down the Andean Mountains, 4 am wake up calls...climbing another four thousand stairs to be the first 400 in Machu Picchu so we can climb ANOTHER more ELITE mountain Huayna Picchu, and the food... The food was amazing.

Anyway, Mel and I should be back on Monday with regular updates again. We should have one up on Monday on our trek through the Andes and one on Wedndsay about Cusco. And after we finish our the taxes the Uncle Sam so dearly wants us to do, we will be off to either northern Peru then Ecuador and Colombia, or down to Argentina and Chile. We will be sure to keep everyone posted.
