Safely Off El Camino Inca

Just a short post to let everyone know that we made it safely and successfully through the Inca Trail! We're currently at an internet café in Aguas Calientes, which is the closest town to Machu Picchu, where we finished the trail. The only word to describe the hike is "AMAZING." This has truly been a life-changing journey, and we can't wait to share the pictures with everyone. We kept a travel journal along the way, and we will post details and pictures as soon as we can, which will probably be this weekend since all camera batteries are dead and internet connections are not as fast as in the U.S.

We will be riding the train back to Cusco tonight to reclaim the belongings we left at the hotel (and to shower!) and will then start preparing for the trip home. We'll probably be spending an extra day in Cusco, as it looks like the flight times have changed - not to worry though, we'll be safe and we have travel insurance. This means that no, Moms, you do not need to call the Embassy. We'll call everyone when our plans are confirmed and when we are boarding planes. Or maybe we'll just stay and live here!
