For 1 week in Cusco the four of us took a Spanish class. It was great to be in a school environment. For 4 hours each day we were studying Spanish! Staying in an apartment outside of Cusco it forced us to practice Spanish a lot more than if we were in the USA. Most of the students were just out of college, so it was sort of weird being a family …… but we learned a lot!! Baba and Grandpa Chris joined our Peru adventure 2 days ago; we are now in Machu Picchu!!! It was breathtaking when we turned the corner and saw Machu Picchu right there in front of us! I don’t think it has hit me yet that we just saw an amazing part of the world! Tomorrow I think it will! There is no way to explain the magnificent beauty of it! The pictures don’t do it justice!
I can’t believe the trip is over in less than 2 weeks! It seems like yesterday we were in the LAX airport waiting for our New Zealand flight!
In 2 short weeks we will be back to what we call “life!”
Check the pictures for Machu Picchu!
