Tbt: Old Peru

Travel weekend…family wedding. Have a good one!

The excitement is growing as we’re finally actually doing some serious planning for our Peru trip in the fall. We have our tickets to Lima, and did surprisingly well on Copa Airlines. We like them because it’s a relatively quick flight, and coming back it’s a daytime flight (arriving Vegas at night.)

Leaving however, is a different story. The flight departs at 01:33 AM, so it’s a late night at the airport, and a red-eye flight. It always leaves me a little dazed, but  it ends up going fast as we sleep through the Las Vegas to Panama City part (about 6 hours,) and then drift in and out from Panama to Lima.

We arrive at 3:17 PM local Lima time, and will slouch over to the hotel, and grimly try and stay awake until as late as possible. Tentatively, our friends should be arriving at midnight. We don’t have their details yet…

It’s warming up here in Northwest Arizona, but still it has been a glorious Spring so far. Flowers everywhere, and more wildlife has been spotted this year.

Another from the astounding collection at Museo Larco in Lima, Peru.

Snuck this one in late. It’s been a super busy time; we’re literally working “half” days, you know, 12 hours a day. The joy of being self employed!

Here’s some more from the incredible collection at Museo Larco:

It’s a glorious day in Northwest Arizona. The temperatures are creeping upwards, but it’s still very nice, and the nights are cool.

Meanwhile in the tropics of the Sacred Valley:

Machu Picchu Monday

I promised in an earlier post to update the train schedules etc. to Machu Picchu. Well, I’m happy to report that I’ve begun to review the whole trip again as we have friends that want to go, and I should be posting something soon. (Just as soon as I finish my taxes!)

Meanwhile, here’s a taste:
