Viewing Post for: Inca Trail 2015

Date: Monday, August 10
Location: Lima, Peru

We are all here safe and sound, Beej took an extra day to get here via Columbia but she is here.

Wonderful day of exploring Lima.

Visited some beautiful museums, old cathedrals and the Plaza Mayor. Had a walk in the park of love and watched and a few of us flew in paragliders. Stopped at the sun beach but did not have time to partake. Lunch was an exploration of local food in a grocery store. Empanadas (mini meat pie) very popular. Curt and Jim went for a run and looked for local beer.

The day was topped off by a fine seafood dinner including civiche. (Seafood marinated in life e choice that Lima is famous for)

Very tired now and will be up early for our flight over the Andes. Please blog us and write us. We will pot daily.

Hi Tory and Tj! I just wanted to let you know that we are all missing and thinking of you! I hope everything is going great, because at the gym everybody is improving a ton! My yurchankoes have improved so much more! I'm sure Sarah told you about passing the fitness test, and how next Monday we will be trying out for the team! The entire gym is super excited to see you back in the gym, and show you what we have been working on! I hope you have a great time in Peru!

Hey Torey, just thinking of u today! I hope ur having a decent time there in Peru. However if not, I hope my good news will set a smile wider than those mountains. Anyway, Haley Juenker and I have qualified for varsity tryouts this upcoming Monday! Recently, I have began working double backs on floor if u have not heard already. My giants are slowly but surely improving with minor and sometimes major corrections. The gym is doing just fine and we are all excited to see u soon! Have fun:)

Good morning Tor and TJ! It was great to talk with you last night, but disappointing to hear you have not gotten all my texts. They say "delivered" but that apparently doesn't mean received. I'll keep sending them, you can always read them when you get home:). We hope today is another great adventure for you all, it must be amazing to finally be there. Have fun, be careful and remember how much we love you. Love mom and Jacquie

So excited to see some of my favorite people are together in Peru. Rick, if you have not gotten the memo, Soha and family never get where they are going on a plane without a side adventure....Sue and Bob, so awesome. We were coming back from the ADK this weekend and I was telling them about our trip across the country eating food from Soha's family...:) Be Safe! Keep posting.

I have looked and looked all over the house and in the yard for you and I can't find you. I don't want to play "hide and seek" anymore. Just come out from wherever you are, I miss you. Love, Shelby

Sounds as though your adventure has gotten off to a great start. Only two days in but I miss you both tons! Have a great time today and enjoy your journey. I wish I was more adventurous and could join you, but someone has to stay home and keep things on track-LOL! Take lots of pictures and make many memories. Very few people will ever have the chance to experience what is ahead for you. Shelby sends her love. Take care of each other, be careful. We love you both very much. Love mom and Jacquie

Can't believe Soha jinxed Beej! Good to know she made it and you all are having fun... Just wanted to say hi.. Looking forward to the pictures. In other news.. Aashna is a month old today :)

So glad you all finally met up!! No gossip or family updates yet - but hopefully soon! :) Dad says hello to all the hikers and wishes you all a safe and pleasant hike. And of course, he has some advice to Beej: From an experienced hiker, eat plenty, drink lots (he didn't specify what), and pee as often as you need to. And of course, follow your older sister's advice, word by word.
