Peru First days highs and lows

Made our connection by 10 minutes in Miami to Lima after a nerve wracking change of our flight to Peru three times, but our bags didn't and are still nowhere to be seen.

Mild altitude sickness, cold (41 degrees in the the Sacred Valley) with no heat in our hotel and no warm clothes (all in the missing bags), very sore knees after miles of walking through the wonderful Inca ruins in Pisac (hiking sticks and the more than 3 oz of Voltaren ointment were in the luggage), hail, our original guide getting stuck in Puna and sending his excellent younger brother, our hotel losing our reservation, not able to get a working SIMS cards for our phone, and almost no sleep for two days now- none of this has stopped us from being thrilled to be here.

Amazing and beautiful and friendly.

Peru has been wonderful, Not easy, but wonderful

Tomorrow should be even better after some sleep and buying new clothes and hiking sticks.
