We are going on the road again

Tickets have been bought! We are finally going on our much anticipated South America trip. The Galapagos Islands was on the list for our 15th wedding anniversary, but we were living in China at the time and went to Tibet instead. 2011 will be our 20th. While checking off the Galapagos, we thought we would take a spin around the continent.

There had been much agonizing. At first we were going to fly to San Diego and start at the top of Mexico. Did I think we were on "The Amazing Race?!" Then we were going to make a big loop in South America, but I was so afraid of "City of God" spilling onto us. Cutting out Brazil clarified everything. We are leaving on September 14 to fly into Cartagena, Colombia, making our way along the West Coast: Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Chile, not sure where to start loopback, and eventually flying back from Buenos Aires in the spring.

Again, I am envious! We truly enjoyed our Peru trip back in 2003. Have a great time. I will have to try to catch up with you two: Ecuador, Iguazu fall, etc etc.
