07/31 – Day 1:
Much more of the day was spent at the airport than I had originally planned. Our 2:00 flight from Detroit to Atlanta was delayed until 3:30, so we had a very small window of time to find our group and transfer onto our flight from Atlanta to Lima. After landing in Atlanta, we raced clear across the airport to get to our departure gate in time. Fortunately, or unfortunately, our flight to Lima was delayed as well. This allowed me some time to eat dinner and relax before taking off.
Finally, we reached our destination, Lima, Peru, around 1:00 a.m. Customs and airport security went much more smoothly than I had anticipated, and two large buses were waiting outside to take us to our hotel. I was really excited to get to Hotel Ibis, primarily to catch up on some much needed rest, and we got to our rooms around 3:00 a.m. Tomorrow will be filled with sight seeing and adventuring, and I cannot wait!
