These last two entries are basically for the google map.  I wanted it to accurately reflect our itinerary.  We had a stop-over again in Atlanta, GA before heading back to Los Angeles.

Oh just so that this entry isn't wasted, I wanted to tell you about our taxi ride from the bus terminal to the airport in Lima (on our way home).  When Rowena and I jumped into the cab, the driver turns to me and says in lightning fast Spanish...  "blah, blah, blah, police, blah, blah, blah, 35 soles (our agreed fair), blah, blah, blah, ahora (now), blah, blah, blah."  My response to all that?  "Si." LOL

From that exchange, I turn to Rowena jokingly and say, "if he does anything funny, I want you to run out the door while I keep him busy."  No sooner than I say that, he turns through these dark side streets... but then eventually to the main streets.  He was just trying to avoid traffic and eventually get to the airport.  I almost busted out laughing.  I never knew what he said, and why he included "police" in that string of sentences.

It was just one of those many funny moments in the trip.
