The Amazon River and Machu Picchu, August 2009

We spent two and a half weeks in Peru, including a week on the Amazon River and a couple of days in Machu Picchu. The photos on this site are broken down by location and by day.

We went with Overseas Adventure Travel ( and were very pleased with the trip. If you think you might like to take one of their trips, contact us and we can get you a discount.
