Hola amigos,

Finally we write a blog, finally we are well enough to do so. As you can see from the title that our stomachs have been taking a beating, but all is well now, for now. TIP...DO NOT EAT PERUVIAN CHEESE SANDWICHES...not fun.

So far we´ve been having a blast, the first couple nights we stayed in lima at a great hostell right in the middle of the city, very nice. Didn´t do much, slept a lot, walked around the city and then got our drink on at night. Drank the Peruvian drink called Pisco Sours, very very dangerous, just ask Shane, the second night he slept hugging and kissing the porcelain, it was rather amusing for me. Had to get up the next day and get on the bus, not fun, just ask Shane!!

From there have been hitting up little beach towns, it´s been great. Went to a place called the Poor Man´s Galapagos, otherwise known as Islas Ballestas..see pics, it was an amazing boat tour.

We are in Huacachina now, its very hot, it´s rough let me tell you. This place is a natural oasis in the desert, with a natural lagoon in its center, its insanly beautiful. Our hostel has a beautiful pool with a bar, we went sandboarding and dunebugging yesterday, it was so much fun bit it hard on the sandboards ate a lot of sand, sand in places i never imagined sand could go!!

We´re off today to a bigger city to chill out for a few days, Cusco, hopefully it´s a bit cooler there cause its at elevation (not that were complaining) than off to Machhuu Pichuu, Than hopefully getting out of Peru as quick as possible cause people have been telling us such amazing things about Bolivia, Argentina and Chile.

Hope all is well with everyone, miss you lots, write when u get a chance.


Teri and Shane

I think we're going to have to start venturing out further in our travels and staying in hostels - what a fabulous hostel that you sent pics of. Sounds like you're having a great time - even if Shane has spent some of it in the toilet - ít's all part of the adventure. Looking forward to your next blog!
