It turns out our group of 16 was quite diverse with young and mature adults from all over the globe, Australia, New Zealand, England, Ireland, Canada, and us (US). We loved it! The accents in our brains were having a grand old time! It was also interesting to hear Spanish being spoken with all the different accents. And, it turns out this group was respectful, fun, and extremely congenial. We meshed extremely well and had a fabulous time together. Thank you, Jessica S., Chris, Ryan, Jessica T., Willie, Linda K., Andy, Linda T., Elizabeth, Chet, Inka, and Anjana!! Yes, we have 2 Jessica's, 2 Linda's, and 2 honeymoon couples. And, 3 birthdays!!
We were all very efficiently checked in, given our room keys, and direction to meet back with Jose for a city walking orientation tour within 30 minutes. Again, we were all off following our leader, Jose. After a quick stop to let everyone exchange money into solis, the Peruvian currency, we were escorted to Toldas Pollo (roast chicken) for lunch. A delicious meal and we were again fortified to continue with our walking, discovery tour.
