Well its official:  we have decided to head to Peru this November!  I guess its okay that Mike gets what he wants – well, at least sometimes!  Besides, it will most certainly be an amazing adventure and a great learning experience with lots of great sights, food, and drinks.  I also read that the Pisco Sour is their national cocktail, and it sounds delicious! Surely a drink made with lime juice and egg whites will fortify me for the jungle trekking?  Right?

Machu Picchu is also listed as one of the top 6 things to see before you die, according to the 1000 Places to See Before you Die.  And if its good enough for Cameron Diaz, well heck, it’ll be good enough for me!
