Coming together in Lima

Coming together in Lima

, Norm and Phil arrived in early today and spent the day preparing the way for the rest of the trekkers to arrive: checking into the hotel, meeting and greeting at the airport and trying to get some rest after more than 14 hours of flying time. The team expects to sleep well tonight!Coming together in Lima

The first 24 hours of trips like these are always a challenge–anxious to begin the adventure yet exhausted from long days of travel. Emotions range from excitement to apprehension to gratitude that after all the hard work of the past few months trekkers have finally arrived to test themselves on their journey to the peak!

As the team arrives slowly in , thoughts are with the people back at home: friends, family and loved ones. And especially all of the people who have assisted, either with moral support for the training necessary to trek at altitude or the folks who listened to the stories the trekkers told them and then donated to help children and youth suffering from . It’s why we trek.

Tomorrow will see the last of the arrive and some sightseeing in . We’ll have another, more comprehensive update, as soon as we can.

    Hmm it looks like your site ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess
    I’ll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to the whole thing.

    Do you have any recommendations for first-time blog writers?
    I’d definitely appreciate it.

    Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I
    had to tell someone!
