    Traveled down to South America with a great friend last winter, crossing the southern hemisphere by planes, trains, boats and automobiles.

    Our adventure started in Peru at Lake Titicaca, "The Lake at the Roof of the World".

    After visiting a few islands, we began to venture further south into Bolivia.

    Enjoying the Winter Solstice at the primordial ruins of Tiahuanaco and Puma Punku, and exploring the mystery of the Viracochas amazingly accurate craftsmanship and precise engineering.

    Heading back into Peru we embarked on a 10 hour train ride through the Andes Mountains, leading us into the Inca capital city of Cuzco.

    From there we traveled into the Sacred Valley all the way up to Machu Picchu, and returned to Cuzco for a Peruvian style New Years fiesta.

    Afterwards we headed north into the Peruvian Amazon jungle.

    Five days of boat rides, bird watching, hanging with monkeys and sloths, piranha fishing, jungle hikes, catching caimans bullfrogs and tarantulas, ayahuasca cerimonies at the Shamans and learning other traditions from these Amazonian tribes.

    Finishing our adventure we blasted off 600 miles from the coast of Ecuador out to the remote volcanic Islands of Galapagos, where we enjoyed 10 days of breathtaking landscapes and an incredibly diverse and exotic menagerie of animals.

    This was a truly remarkable experience that exposed the sublime along with the unsightly reality of the world.

    Enjoy...
