We are in Cusco! What did it take to get here?
We first arrived in Lima Monday morning around midnight and stood in the immigration line for several hours and then tried to book tickets for Cusco that same morning.
But all the flights were full and we were stranded in Lima until Tuesday morning. We arrived at our guest house a little after 3 am, and we were pretty tuckered out.
Though not in our plans, it worked out great. Not only did it allow the Strongs an extra day to prepare for our arrival, it also allowed us to rest up a bit more and take a tour of the city. We went to a wonderful seafood buffet with a beautiful view of the Pacific Ocean.
After the buffet we had a chance to swim in the ocean for a while. That was quite an adventure to say the least, but a lot of fun.
After we swam, we got to go across the city to watch the fastest sunset of our lives! We are talking down in sixty seconds—we made it just in time. It was beautiful!
We went back to the guest house, had pizza and prepared some things for the upcoming youth camp and then hit the hay. Why? We had another early morning and a flight to Cusco. And by early we mean: leave the hospitality house at 3 am. After a few complications, we finally boarded the plane on our way to our final destination.

It took us two extra days but we are finally here and excited to embark on the second stage of our mission. More updates to come… If you do not comment, this message will self-destruct in ocho segundos (that is eight seconds for you non-Spanish speakers).
