Hola From Peru!

Hi!!!

So we made it here.. we are now in Cusco, Peru which is very close to Macchu Picchu.
Lima was OK. Pretty cold, foggy, damp and coldy.... but it was nice to see another South American city --def not a fan though!

We purchased our PLANE tickets from a GROCERY STORE btw... that is amazing. You can pay all your bills and purchase plane tickets at a grocery store LOL--- pay my cable, get some shampoo and some bread.

So we flew to Cusco, I left my bag in the taxi from the airport, FREAKED out, took another taxi back to the airport and FOUND my bag in the taxi!!! SERIOUS luck if you could call it that!!! I almost died I think...all of my makeup and cell phone and sunglasses and all this shit. NO BUENO AMIGOS!!!

The BF got sick from some fish, had to go to the clinic and they gave him altitude medicine and headache stuff.... hmm.. well it worked for the most part!

Been eating ceviche every day --good stuff! They play insanely loud music outside our hostal until all hours of the morning every night.. lol and its all really horrible American music! wtf! haha

My hair dryer (bc this is VERY important!) didnt work since we forgot the converter thing.. so we went on a search to find one that works. Had no such luck,,, so we went and actually bought another hair dryer. For all the ladies out there, that is NOT a "being spoiled" issue right?! No.. Its cold and I dont want to get sick damnit! Needless to say, I got a damn hair dryer.

Friday is Macchu Picchu... that should be cool. Then we fly back to Lima on Monday and attempt to go to the Nazca lines, stay down there for a couple days, come back to Lima, meet up with my friend from college, and go home!

Very interesting trip ive got going on here... i will fill in more details when i get back with many pictures I am sure. I love third world countries but just flying back into JFK is the reason i love New York.

Ciao!

Ah, that is so exciting you're in Peru! And I totally would have bought a new hair dryer, too. Can't wait to hear about Macchu Picchu--I've heard it's amazing!

Kristina said...

Sounds like good times! Keep enjoying yourselves and sharing with us back in the states.

Hair dryer is essential, of course you should get one. Now, pictures please :)

Wow, tons of excitement already! Glad you got your bag back-- and sorry the boy got sick! Enjoy the trip and can't wait to read more.

salsa dancing at uptown on the main square (top right hand corner - but that, of course, depends where you're standing). good times!

Girl, I don't want to see another blog post from you until you get home! No wasting time in internet cafes while in Peru!

Just kidding (sort of). I thought Lima was unimpressive too, but Cuzco is awesome. When I was there I got a little sick from the altitude but it was nothing a little coca tea couldn't fix! I would suggest having a cup before hiking around Macchu Picchu--it will help you keep your energy up in the thin atmosphere.

Can't wait to see pics!

Sumit said...

Wow... plane tickets at grocery stores sounds cool!

And Macchu Picchu is supposed to be an awesome place. It's on my wishlist of places to visit too. :)

Pictures, pictures!! Post loads of them, please!

The trip sounds amazing so far (apart from your bf getting sick :( Glad to read that he's feeling better though). Have fun, enjoy everything and I look forward to the pictures :)

Moonjava said...

I'm jealous. You're in Peru. I'm in Oklahoma. You see the difference. Sound like the trip has been nothing short of exciting so far, and I'm sure Macchu Picchu will be awesome! Post pics when you return, please. :)

Loved the post. Your blog has a very cozy feeling. Me like. Purchasing plane tickets in a grocery store? Amazing.

Following your blog!

I can't believe you were able to find your bag...you definitely had some good karama sent your way.

Enjoy the rest of your trip.

abby said...

It sounds UHmazing!! Amusingly, I just told my husband today at dinner an hour ago that I would like to see Macchu Picchu someday. Please take pictures :)

Akirah said...

Hope you're having a great time! It sounds like you are. And don't worry about the hair dryer issue. A girl's gotta keep that frizz under control!

Dan said...

Very lucky with the bag! I can't wait to go to Peru, I'll be there around this time next year.
