Here's a few of my pics from my two week honeymoon in Peru. There's no cycling, but seeing how this is essentially a photo forum, I thought you all might enjoy. I''ve omitted pics of me and the wifey smooching. :D

most excellent! some day i must go to Machu Picchu.
i like your composition and the color are quite vivid.
were those Llama or Alpaca?
Thanks.

Macchu Picchu (spelling?) was a bit like the Falls of Iguazu in that both are really touristy but so amazing that you don't care. But get there early nonetheless.

They are llamas. They apparently have a herd that lives on the ruins, keeping the grass down. We did see a lot of alpaca herds in the high valleys.

Really nice pix. Looks like you had a great time, and 2 weeks makes it that much better.

What made you decide on Peru?

I've always wanted to go--the lady too. I'm fluent in Spanish, so we were able to meet locals and whatnot.

Awesome pics and congrats on the hitchment...

My fiance and I have a friend who has been teaching in Peru and is writing grants to build a cultural center in a smaller town there (she also married a Peruvian while there)...by cultural center, I mean a school to give a way for the indigenous to continue teaching their traditions, sort of cultural preservation I guess...not a christian mission type thing is what I'm saying...NTTAWWT.

Anywho, so the fiance and I may find ourselves travelling there at some point...but for our honeymoon this September we're staying closer to home due to time/fundage.

How long was the trip from DIA? Did the trip end up being very spendy...if you don't mind the nosiness...?
