Peru

We loved our Peru trip! Last two weeks in April 2012... Lima and Miraflores, then to Puno by air, Lake Titicaca, to Cusco by train, motorcycle tours in the Sacred Valley, train to Aguas Calientes, Machu Picchu, back in Cusco for a night, then fly to the rain forest in Puerto Maldonado.  City tours, ruins, culture, history, people, animals, food, us.  What a trip.  Enjoy!
