Adventures in Peru

Dave and I arrived in Cuzco this morning and were completely exhausted from the past 3 days in Lima. I got a chance to see Zoili in Lima, which was really amazing' she took us around to the best restaurants (Hooters) and places in Lima..

Although the sun didn´t come out for our 3 days in Lima, it still was great to walk around the city , watch Dave lose money in the casinos, and generally just have a enjoyable time with Zoili..

We are heading to Machu Pichu on Monday.. still trying to get used to the altitude and avoid the sickness that comes along with it, but there are special drinks here that help´with that problem.

After Machu Pichu, we are taking a flight back to Lima and should be back in Buenos September 29th. I´m taking a lot of pics which I will post on the blog next week..

I know I´m always a bit short on these posts, but if you email me I will surely tell you more..

Oh yeah, our hostel overlooks the city of Cuzco, its very peaceful and we are only paying $8-night per person.. wow!

Short Update

Alon has been here for the past week! I say that with an exclamation point because it has been quite a jive from the relatively quiet life I was living. But it's been great having so many Israelis here in my apartment. Alon's Israeli friends from Peru are also in town and so is Alon's good friend from home, who I invited to sleep on the couch.

I'm leaving for my short Lima trip September 21st. Since Alon spent the last two months in Lima, he's giving me a lot of great advice.

There have been a few sunny day's lately. It's surprising how much I have missed the great Florida heat that I never knew I loved. Speaking of love, the nightclubs here are booming.

I'm changing my plans, probably, to stay here another three months to save enough money to travel again. The wiser thing to do.

I will try to write more later. Till then, I'm available outside of normal business hours :)

Upcoming Plans

I've had a pleasant time in Argentina, but lately I've been feeling the need to move on to another place, somewhere else to explore. I have my apartment until November 1st, and I think that will be a good time to leave. I will probably head over to Melbourne, Australia or Madrid, Spain - I haven't decided yet.

I'm excited becaues my great childhood friend, Alon, is coming down to Buenos Aires this week. The last time I saw him was when I was in Israel 3 years ago. The past year, Alon set off for a trip around the world. He travelled through the states and saw my sister. He was also in China and is now travelling in South America. I told Alon he could crash on my couch as long as he wanted to stay.

Last week, my friend Dave from UF and I booked a trip to Peru (September 22-28). We are going to spend 3 days in Lima and a few days in Cuzco, the fortress city of the ancient Incas. We're planning to do a 3 day jungle trek up to the ruins. I'm going to be taking a lot of pictures. Hopefully, I'll even see my old gf Zoila who got deported!

I'll be sure to post more later.

Take care.
