TexanTreks is going back to Peru!

Oh yes!  TexanTreks is heading back to their favorite country on the planet.  Peru.  You saw several great articles on Texantreks from our first trip to Peru two years ago. 

The Pisac market, Cusco, a day in Lima, Machu Picchu.  Wonderful.

This time I have a bit different trip planned.  There was just so much I did not get to do last time.  I love the Inca history so we will still be hot on the trail of the Inca.  But there will be more too!

A four day trip out to Iquitos and down the Amazon River.  I cannot wait to see the wonderful wildlife and do some fishing for a piranha or two or three.  Maybe even grab an anaconda? The only downside is having to get all the shots to be safe from all the crazy diseases in the Amazon.  Oh well.  We must suffer sometimes for our adventures right?

Then it is back to Cusco.  Last time we went north into the Sacred Valley of the Inca.  This time I am heading south to the Inca ruins of Tipon as well as the Wari ruins of Picillacta.

From there it is time for a return trip to Machu Picchu.  It is just too magical of a place to not see again.  Finally, we'll close it out with a visit to Sacsayhuaman and the famous Pisac market.

So get ready.  Early next year will be a flood of more great Peru articles coming to TexanTreks.
