Peru / Panama 2013 - Travel to Peru

Wednesday, Sept 4

The first day of my adventure began at 2 am. That's right I said 2 am! I thought about just staying up but decided I should try to get a little sleep. I actually woke up 10 minutes before my alarm went off. I must have been a little excited. I needed to be up to Ty's house at 3:15 am. Ty's friend Tenielle got up just to go drop us off at the airport! Not to mention she had made her Magic Cookie Bars. They were indeed magic.

Our flight out of SLC Airport was around 5:30. We got to the airport before there was anyone there to check our bags and then we were to security right as they were opening up for the day. I had no idea that they ever shut down. 

We flew to LA where we had a 5 hour layover. Then a flight to Panama City. And from Panama City, Panama to Lima, Peru. During that flight there was a girl who was supposed to be sitting by the window but was snuggled up against me chatting the whole time. She didn't really speak English and I really don't speak Spanish but that didn't stop her. I think she might have been looking for a husband. :) At least it help the time go by. We arrived in Lima just after midnight.

By the time we got settled in our hotel, which was basically at the airport, it was around 2 am and we needed to get up early for a flight to Cusco, Peru. Eek! I guess 2.5 hours of sleep was better than nothing.
