My wife and I returned from a recent trip to Peru. It was amazing. When we travel I can’t help but keeping a log of random observations throughout the trip, these are just a few.
I brought a lot of digital reading material with me as it’s my preferred reading method. But when I fly I like to get a magazine or two. Funny thing - Magazine stores like Hudson really don’t sell them anymore. There were like 8 to pick from and nothing I wanted.
I am here for the touch-free everything bathrooms.
The Atlanta Airport Plane-Train is a life saver between terminals.
From the time I left my house to the time we arrive at our destination in Peru I am estimating about 24 hours - 11 of them actually flying.
13 days driving around the country from location to location - I saw 1 stop light.
The people are incredibly nice even to those who do not speak the language.
I saw more dogs while I was there then I thought possible. Some were maybe a little dirty or scruffy but all healthy. I tried to pet them all.1
I have no idea why, but I heard more Aerosmith there than I have in two years
The country as a whole does not observer speed limits - so to combat this there are speed bumps in the road seems like every .5k - and they are not small.
Drivers must be part Mario Andretti and part Super Mario.
Machu Picchu is amazing and I think the blue print for the first IKEA store maze.
Shaving at altitude and nicking yourself produces a lot of blood.
I heard more Aerosmith in little stores than I have in 2 years.
The stop signs in Peru are merely for street decoration.
Due to the mountains they have carved more hair pin turns than I could count.
A half can of Pringles were $72
