Peru - Machu Picchu

I'm sorry I haven't blogged before about Peru because I have been sick with the flu and I'm not going to write much today either for I have two writing conferences coming up on the next two weekends and I must prepare pitches for them etc.
However, I thought I would post one photo of my son, Dario, on top of a mountain he climbed with Machu Picchu in the background. Machu Picchu is even more amazing than expected. It was raining the day we were there - the only day it did rain on the trip - but it was still mind-blowing as it sat amongst the clouds with incredible steep mountains all about. This was taken the day before with brilliant sunshine. We woke the next morning to heavy rain. Can't win them all.
I will post more photos and tell you more when the conferences are over.

It looks as awesome as I expected, Suzanne. Something very ethereal about that place. You are so lucky.
Hope you're feeling better!

Suzanne Perazzini said...

Feeling much better thanks, Raine.
Ethereal is the right word - quite other worldly.

Fantastic picture!

Sorry you've been under the weather. Hope you're feeling A-1 and ready to knock 'em dead at the conferences.

Best of luck!

What a "dream trip"! I'm looking forward to more, Suzanne.

Suzanne Perazzini said...

Feeling much better, thanks, Lainey. Got my glad rags and am off to the Australian conference tomorrow. Should be fun.

Heather, as soon as I get over the two back to back writing conferences I'm attending this weekend and next, I will do another post on Peru.

Machu Picchu looks majestic.

Have fun at the conferences and I know you will wow them with your pitches!!!

Hugs, Nancy

Machu Picchu is majestic, Nancy. That is a good word for it. I am back from the first conference and it was great, but I am tired. I need to store some sleep for the next one.

One of the most remarkable places on the planet to visit in my hunble opinion. I look forward to more photos and stories from there.

Suzanne Perazzini said...

I have to agree with you, Mark. I was blown away by the atmosphere up there. Such a spectacular place.
