Elena resting in JFK with our gear.
If you look closely, you can see the flashcards on the right...maybe.
We made it! We´re currently sitting in an internet cafe, reveling in the beautiful, sunny weather and heat. Cuzco is fantastic, the scenery is incredible! Rafo´s wife, Monica, picked us up at the Cuzco airport and brought us to their house, which is awesome. There is also a Russian man staying there, and this weekend a girl our age and an older man are coming (we think). So, the part you´ve all been waiting for, a detailed analysis of our flight. We caught our Portland flight in plenty of time, but not before Elena had her grapefruit seed extract confiscated, along with her hand sanitizer and chapstick (My lips are quite chapped). Next, we had six hour layover in JFK airport, where we spent half the time sitting in a corner doing Spanish flashcards and the other half debating the merits of onions and tomatoes. Our flight from JFK to Lima was seven hours, but Elena filled the time vomiting. First, she projected a wave of vomited that swept over Tom and Rafo´s laptop case. Then, she puked mid-aisle rushing to the bathroom. Good times. We think it was the altitude pills, as Tom felt ill too. Scor is Elena: 3,

In case you didn´t get enough the first time.
Tom: 0 in the race, Tom needs to catch up. Anyway, we made it to Lima at 6:00 in the morning, and spent the next three hours before our flight just hanging out. Finally, we got on our hour long flight to Cuzco, and here we are! Huzzah! Now some pics...
