    Loved your outfit, Megan! What an interesting way to live, on a floating island made of reeds. Who would have thought? Peru seems to be a very unique country comprised of many different cultures.

    Default Day 8 in Peru

    This morning we walked around the little island that our hotel was on. We ran into the owner's alpaca herd when we were about half way around.



    After our walk we headed out to Atuncolla, a small town on the alitplano. We visited a farmhouse there and got to see how a family might live.

    Default Day 8 in Peru continued

    After visiting with the farm family and their alpacas and llamas...



    ...we headed for the ruins at Sillustani. This place was used for years as a cemetary by many groups of people. There are the remains of towers from the pre-Incan as well as the Incan times.

    This is an Incan funeral tower that they found 5 mummified bodies in.



    This was the highest we got as on top of this hill it was close to 14,000 feet. After our visit we headed back to the airport in Juliaca to catch a plane back to Lima.

    That night we had our farewell dinner and it was sad to say goodbye to some of our new friends.

    The next day we did a bit of shopping in Lima and tried to get some rest as we had a night flight back to Miami and then travelled during the day to get back home. It was a long trip but very worth it. I would love to go back to South America some day!

    I'm glad everyone enjoyed it - I enjoyed reliving it as I was writing.

    Next trip will probably be either Turkey or Guatemala/Belize. Have to save up some funds first though

    Thanks for an awesome TR, Megan! Like, Pam, I've never been to South
    America. Peru looks like somewhere I'd like to visit someday. I've always wanted to see the ruins at Machu Picchu. You certainly must have been exhausted by the time you arrived home in Vancouver! What a long trip.

    Central America is good, but Turkey is awesome. If you go there, make sure you include Ephesus in your itinerary.
