Today was more of a travel day. It is not easy to get to and from Cusco because of the mountains. Because of this we had to to the same small commercial plane back to our jet. When we started off in the morning it was raining though, and because of the mountains it makes it very difficult to fly, so we were slightly delayed. Luckily, the airport kept in contact with us so we waited at the hotel rather than at the airport, which was much nicer. To pass the time one of our lecturers gave his presentation early on "Why We Travel". 

After about an hour or so the airport let us know it was time to head to the airport to fly to Lima. Our flight to Lima was easy, and we landed and headed to our plane right away. The plane ride was nice and easy, we had another lecture on the volcanos of Easter Island which I found fascinating. Easter island is made up of three volcanos that over time came together to form the island. It is a very cool history. 

When we started to get close to the island the pilot decided to take us on an overhead tour. So we flew around for about an hour looking at the scenery, the three volcanos, and trying to get a glimpse of the famous Moai. It was beautiful.

After the plane ride we landed and had dinner and drinks. It was very late so I tried to head to bed as early as I could. We got to the hotel rooms and they were so cool! But I did realize VERY quickly that the bathroom was right in the middle of the room for everyone to see... no walls. I was like, awesome Dad, just awesome...

Im very excited for the Moai tour tomorrow. Cant wait to tell you all about it!
