overview / intro

In September, we took the first step of a plan to explore South America, and specifically the country of Peru. It has the start of the Amazon river, areas of the Amazon jungle, mountain peaks over 22,000 feet, sand desert and a hidden oasis, the coast with beaches. Plus the biggest reasons that visitors come here are the amazing food options and Machu Picchu.

We are basing our stay in Lima, near family. I will learn some basic Spanish and do some remote work. There is also a lot to see and do in Lima, with a lot of Spanish and Inca history. It's home to 11 million people, about 1/3 of the country population. There's lots of restaurants, museums, beaches, and neighborhoods to check out in Lima. Plus a lot of week long trips planned around the country.


  • Peruvian ceviche
  • the Sacred Valley near Cusco
  • Machu Picchu (obviously)
  • spending some time at the beaches
  • catching a local futbol match
  • more Peruvian food
  • Museums & historic sites in Lima
