My Journey begins now...

I have found that I am missing something in life. Am I not getting something? Or is the world not getting me? I know what I want and need but i cannot find it. Will I find it in Peru? No. But I will be able to step away from all that has clouded my mind and my experience in Peru will only be the beginning of what is to come.
A little about what I will be doing...
My first two weeks I will be in a city called Cusco. There I will hike four days On the Inca Trail into Machu Pichu ( the photo above). I will stay one night in Machu Pichu so I can watch the sun rise over the sacred ruins. Then I will return to Lima where for 6 weeks, I will be teaching children in hospitals with HIV/AIDS, Cancer and other physical disabilities.
Not exactly sure what else I will be doing but I plan to get outdoors and hug the air that is new to me and bath in waters that are unknown to my senses.
If you are reading this prior to May 31, 2008, I have not yet arrived, but stay tuned, my next entry will be from an Internet cafe in Lima Peru!!!

The air is thin up there so you better start jogging before you go. The monkeys will miss you.

p.s. What's with the handicap sign next to the word verification?

Your experiences will undoubtedly be amazing. I hope that you find what you seek and discover what you're missing.

Chew on coca leaves...they numben you so you're not hungery and you wont get tired as the air gets thinner. I'm f'real they're all over the place.
