The Gem of South America: Peru

Machu Picchu Panorama

Hello and welcome to my latest trip report. This one takes us back in time to this past summer. To be exact, the dates of July 2 through July 9, 2012. During this time period my mother and I took a trip of a lifetime to Peru. I hope you all enjoy this report as it did take me quite a bit of time to go through these pictures. I'm also trying out a bit of a different layout to this report. I will be splitting it up by days, however, I won't be including the usual arrival at one airport, departure from another, etc, as I'm veering towards more of a photo report with this one. So sit back, relax and enjoy!

Our flights out to Lima included one to Atlanta then continuing onto Lima. Luckily, we got upgrades on both legs of the trip putting us in First and Business class cabins. I gotta say, the difference between Delta's older J product and their newer one (as seen in the 747) are astounding. The old ones aboard the 767's are like comparing Y to J...

The meals provided were excellent. I can't remember the exact names of the dishes so if anyone has any information on these then let me know! During the flight I watched a few movies on my laptop. I gotta say, it didn't feel like seven hours.

Passing back over Tampa.
