Viewing Post for: Inca Trail 2015

Date: Friday, August 21
Location: Lake Titicaca and heading home

Fantastic day again. Our mothers lead us back to the harbor where we bordered a boat to Taquile island. Here the men knit and the woman weave. We learned which way to wear our tassel on our hats to show if we are single or married. Very handy and cheaper then diamond rings. Lunch was high on the island outside where we could see the whole lake. Both Bolivia and Peru, over 20,000 foot peaks... wow. The lake is so beautiful. The islands have no cars and have worked hard to develop community tourism. Such as rotating which house gets visitors.

A couple hours on the boat brought us back to Puno. We ate a wonderful dinner at a French Peruvian fusion restaurant.

Tomorrow is filled with more activities. We stop at a pre-Inca site. Many come here to feel the energy. Sure enough if you pull out a compass it points in weird directions, so there must be something some people can feel here.

A plane will take us to Lima and dinner is on the pier at a famous seafood restaurant.

Our flight doesn't leave until 4 am so what we do after dinner, you will have to ask us when we get home.

4 people are staying the extra day to get a city tour.

We thank you for following us. It is so wonderful to share with those we love who cant be here the trip. Hopefully we will see some of you at the PPS reunion in the fall. Our next live blog will be India and the Dali Lama in November.

Sending both peace and adventure from 12,200 feet in South America...

What a great adventure you have had - safe journey's back - I was complaining about getting up at 5 am to go get the girls from Woodward then I saw your flights were at 4 am so I guess I can't complain. I so enjoyed following your journey - can't wait to see pictures. You should have a viewing party at the gym!!!

Safe journeys home. I know we can't wait to welcome Soha and Beej and I am sure each of your friends and families feel the same. Thank you for sharing your adventures, challenges and spiritual moments - now bring home some good home brew and chow recipes and we may stop feeling jealous. Travel home well.
