5 - 16 April 2007
Russell and I flew from Miami to Lima, then straight to Cusco to acclimatize (as it's about 11,500 feet high). Went on an all day mountain biking expedition to Moray. Then it's a four day hike on the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu. The steep hike up Wayna Picchu was damn worth all the huffing and puffing.
[BA DA BING!]
The weather was gorgeous for almost all week. Nice sunburn, eh? Our flight left Lima about four hours late, and we missed our connecting flight in Miami. Stuck! One whole day. Staying at a hotel room, and watching television. Ended up walking 3 miles for dinner at Houston's in Coconut Grove, and some Starbucks!
I'm sorry to get to know Russell more. I'm sorry that he got to know me more. And I'm sorry to say that Russell is one fabulous travel partner - bar none! If you want to know why, I'm sorry that you'll have to ask Russell that question.
I am pretty sure that Russell had a blast for his 30th birthday. Right? I think he's saying he's sorry. But not sorry enough to make plans for our next trip: GERMANY! for Oktoberfest. ;o)
