Generally I write and publish the blogs as I'm usually on the trips. However, I decided not to join the Machu Picchu and Galapagos group as I'd been to both places before. So, the blogs on this trip are written by friend and fellow traveler Lyn Whaley. Thank you Lyn.
To help you follow their travels, here's a map of the itinerary.
Some interesting facts about Peru ' s capitol:
9 million of the country's 30 million people live here.
It is the driest capitol in the world with only .08" of rain annually.
The city is divided into 43 districts. Each district has its own mayor, central church square, and municipal buildings.
Today was special in that it was Palm Sunday in a Catholic nation. We saw thousands of people celebrating the feast day and a huge procession to the downtown church.
Here are a few photos from our day.
