Aug 26, 2007 - Pachacamac

You will have to forgive any spelling errors you find-if you saw the keyboard I am typing on, you would die! The letters have all worn off and they have stuck letter stickers on them. I am trying to figure out capitals and punctuation. Hello, I am no longer in the Marriott! Just to give you an idea, the Marriott charges around 54 sols an hour for the computer, which with the exchange rate, is around $16. This internet cafe is charging 1 sol per hour, which is about 30 cents! So I just got back from an amazing trip to the ruins of...

Jun 5, 2004 - Cusco to Lima - By plane at last!!!

Cusco is a wicked little place in Peru. It's basically the base for Machu Piccu, the famed 'Inca Trail' and where most of the treks start from. We weren't staying that long though, as this place was just a stopover for a few days on our way to Venezula to meet our friends KT and Scott who were coming over on holiday to see us.

We spent 3 days and 2 nights having fun, and...
