Yay Casey!
Hi Casey! I loved the blog (though some of it was a bit esoteric) and I loved the pictures of Machu Picchu. Only the very young(or very foolish) get to have your experience of it, but what an incredible memory. Thanks for sharing it! I think it is time for you to come home now, don't you think so? Then we can all chat in person about these adventures!! Love, Aunt Jo

Que suerte Casey!

Love, Aunt DD
