Family Vacation in Lima, Cuzco and Machu Picchu!

Exactly one week ago I was sitting here in the courtyard of my Cuzco hostel and I was ready to post some videos showing the great time Grace and Michael and I had in Lima, Cuzco and Machu Picchu. Unfortunately, the hostel’s WIFI wasn’t cooperating so I couldn’t complete the post. The next morning at 5:30, I left for a one week tour of the rainforest in Manu National Park. I have just returned from that tour and re-checked-in to the hostel so I’m finally getting the chance to complete the post. During the week in the jungle, we had no internet, cell-phone service, and often no electricity. The tour was fascinating but tiring and I’ll post more about it later. This post will focus on the reunion with my family here in Peru.

Grace, Michael, and I spent two days in Lima and five days in the Cuzco area. We had a great time but were pretty exhausted by the time they left. I’ve prepared five videos that cover the highlights of our time together and they are, hopefully, self-explanatory. If something isn’t clear, as always, your comments and questions are welcomed.
