Two months in Peru. Already?

Two months ago today we set foot on Peruvian soil after a pretty grueling 24-hour journey. If any of you remember our original plan way, way back in the day, we had intended on spending only a month in Peru before heading south to Bolivia, with Chile being our final destination.

As you may have noticed, though, we’re still here. We haven’t even gone south of Lima (where all the traditional Gringo Trail stops are), and we still haven’t run out of things to do!

In honor of our two-month mark, we’d like to share a bit of what we’ve learned as we’ve barely scratched the surface of this amazing country. It’s quite a lot, so we’ll be breaking this into a four-part series, publishing one part per day over the next four days.

Two months in Peru, Part 1: Peruvian People
Two months in Peru, Part 2: Peruvian Transportation.
Two months in Peru, Part 3: Peruvian Food
Two months in Peru, Part 4: Natural Beauty

We’ve also been doing a bit of work on the site, making it easier to get around:

  • Rob has spent a lot of time reorganizing the Photographs and Fútbol pages, making them more accessible. Check it out!
  • Jessie went back and organized all our old posts into categories of “Cities” and “Topics,” so you can actually find information you might be looking for!

And, finally, announcing our three new weekly columns:

  • Sunday Peru with Three Lenses: a weekly photo essay presented by Robert Kittilson.
  • Wednesday The Mid-week Snack: a weekly feature on Peruvian cuisine.
  • Friday An as-yet unnamed column by Jessie
