A quick 2 night weekend stay, 2 couples, in the Windy City. Once upon a time, I lived in the Chicago area but for the other couple, it was their first visit to the Windy City.

Culture, Cuisine, Character, Cacophony, Charisma, Confusion, Congestion...

Dear Pen Pals,
We have been mostly homebodies here in Florida. So to ward off encroaching ennui, we spent a fortnight in Peru. It turns out that Peruvian food is excellent, if you eat it in Sarasota. In Peru itself not so much. It turns out also that May does not offer the best weather, no matter what the guidebooks say. It was usually cold and often cloudy or worse.

We recently returned from one trip that's been on my Bucket List for years - Peru & Machu Picchu.
After cobbling together 3 Luxury Link packages along with a booking made elsewhere for the Machu Picchu Sanctuary Lodge, we were all set.
