Tomorrow the adventure begins!

After seven months of anticipating and preparing for this trip, it is finally here! Tomorrow I will be flying out of CVG airport to Atlanta where I will board my 6 hour and 40 minute flight to Lima! I will be arriving in Lima at 11:10pm (Peru is on central time, so no jet lag for me!) Here I will await for Meg, Marianne, Chelsea and Maria in the airport then we leave early Monday morning for Cusco! I will try to get on some kind of internet at the airport to let you all know that I have arrived safely! Thank you everyone so far for the well wishes and prayers, it means a lot to me and I will be thinking of you all as I travel.


  1. Rachy:
    I am so proud of you. It was great fun at dinner tonight laughing with all my kids about how funny you all were -- then coming home and watching the videos when we were painting the upstairs room in 2001. You guys have all grow up so fast. I can't wait to share these videos with YOUR kids. Be careful on your adventure; I won't be able to go to the airport - sorry. Can you imagine from being a young girl in those videos to going on your next "bacation". Love, Dad

  2. Well we got Rach off ok from CVG after changing around some of her luggage; her one bag was 66 pounds! oops. emptied some of her month-long supplies into another bag, go tit up to 17 pounds and the big bag was down to 49! Yippee!
    Noey and I sent her off amid the rain showers of Cincinnati toward Atlanta then on to Lima to meet her Marquette buddies who arrived earlier on Sunday. She is not taking her cell phone so we are going to be relying on this blog and SKYPE (when she has wireless internet access) to communicate with her. Safe travels, ya-ya.
