January 28th-30th These pics are from the Uros islands on the Peruvian side of Lake Titicaca. They are man-made floating reed islands. Very strange, very squishy. Pics of Isla del sol, Lake Titicaca, Bolivia. This is the mythical birthplace of the Incas aka belly button of the universe. These pics show the view from our hostel window, the nose of a rowboat and one of the lake's many lagoons.

Were slowly catching up. These pictures are from back in February. We spent 4 days trekking on the Inca Trail. Not only were we the only Americans in our group, but also the only non argentines.
Letter 11, March24 2007
Well we are here in bustling Buenos Aires. We have our own apartment for a couple of weeks and then possibly off to Uruguay (Monte Video) for a few days. So far we have just been walking around, sussing out the different neighborhoods. We are staying in Palermo, very posh. found botanical gardens and Japanese gardens today. Tomorrow we will go in search of Tango and antiques market in St. Telmo.
Letter 10. March 23, 2007
...we are back from trekking... The trek was very tough, but beautiful, saw my first glaciers, and climbed over two severe mountains, camped by rivers and lagoons, didn't bring enough food, so we had to ration food. we were allowed one slice of cheese and one slice of bread!! but we made it, now back to steaks and wine. we are taking a 19 hour bus to B.A. will be there by wed. thinking about renting an apartment for 3 weeks...
Letter 9, March 12, 2007
We made it to Argentina with some interesting border crossing stories. It is so strange in Bariloche, exactly how I picture the Swiss alps to look, beautiful snow crested mountains, green fertile valleys, day glow blue lakes, and log houses everywhere. fresh crisp air. 2 days ago we climbed an active volcano in Chile, took about 7 hours, using ice picks and crampons to reach the top, very challenging, was pretending I was trekking through Antarctica. instead of trekking down, we slid down the mountain in strange plastic diapers for 2 hours. so much fun! yesterday walked in the rain for 8 hours through national park Huerque, brimming with monkey puzzle trees. we will spend a week here in Bariloche trekking around the lakes, then to the big city.
Letter 8--March 7, 2007
Just a few minutes before we board our 15 hour bus ride down south. Yes we are still going to Patagonia, just not as far down as we originally thought, it is just way too long. We are headed to Pucon which is the lake district of Chile, it is Subhira's favorite place, then we are crossing over to Argentina, and will hike around Bariloche, also lake district, its supposed to be absolutely beautiful. then we just hang in Buenos Aires!. Life is good, was so nice seeing Subhira, spent the night at his incredible house, feel rejuvenated and refreshed, and ready for our next chapter
Letter 7--Feb 28, 2007
Well we are finally here in beautiful Valparaiso by the sea. a south American Santa Barbara so nice after the daily struggles of Bolivia. Chile really is a different world, a first world. I'm finally healthy again, I was sick for about a month with stomach stuff. we will head to Santiago in a few days then to Patagonia. I can't believe we are over half way through our trip. So many stories to tell. It is hard to actually get the time to document everything so far, there is just too much. We crossed from Bolivia to Chile on a four day excursion by jeep through the strangest land I have ever seen. the driest desert on the planet with azulent lakes full of pink flamingos and active volcanoes, we were up 17000 feet for 2 days, very very surreal. more later, just enjoying the comforts of Chilean life right now.

Letter 4--Feb. 11, 2007
(In Part, as Rowan asked for me to wait until they sent pictures, but now it is 4 days later, so they are somewhere in the JUNGLE...)
...well we are in the amazon, cannot believe it, so surreal. in the last 42 hours have swam with pink dolphins, held an anaconda. fed wild yellow monkeys. observed sloths,cabibaras, strange exotic birds of prey, fished for piranas, and we haven´t even gone to the jungle proper. we will take off tomorow for a 5 day jungle excursion. very hot and humid...
