Thursday 3rd July 2014 The final pack before we left was a little hectic, where did all the extra stuff come from when we haven't done any shopping? We also now have an Esky (cooler box) thanks to Ili and Allan, but carrying it to the train and car hire place caused Rags a few headaches. Thanks to a bunch of occy straps we bought we managed to attach it to the top of one of the cases and we had no problems with it.

After being home a few days, I still can't get over how amazing the month in Peru really was, almost perfect. I am finding it difficult to answer inquisitive people w/o going into a long answer. We had the chance to live and learn about a totally different culture and society. We got a different perspective on various historical events. And Phil and I had a chance to get to know each other better. We now have acquaintances from literally all over the globe. A couple of things keep coming to mind... The LAN Airline In-Magazine has a message from their CEO titled "Building Bridges." He was making the point that as social beings we all feel the need to be connected to others. This is demonstrated by the billions of people using Facebook, Twitter, and ... read more
