December 2, 2007 Bonus Blog
As a parent of two kids in South America I must say there is always that nagging feeling that something is going to happen and you are totally out of control. The phone rings and you expect a call from the American Consulate. A news flash produces images of jail, and worse. The last I heard, Deena missed a connecting flight to Lima last Wednesday, and it's been totally quiet ever since.

Until 23 minutes ago, when I got this from my Number One Daughter:

The News From Lake Titicaca
"Hey guys!!! I just wanted to let you know that we made it to Peru and we are having a freaking blast. Mom, Dad, your favorite son is doing great and is as hilarious as always. It has been NON STOP laughter since we stepped off the train, and Patricia just fits right in. Although she is pregnant now with Tom's baby, so you guys should probably meet her soon...Tom farted in her face on Machu Picchu today and how could she resist??

"To give you a reference of what's going on, we got to Aguas Calientes yesterday, did Machu today with a 40 dollar local guide-all Spanish, young guy, he was great. Tomorrow we head to Ollantaytambo to see the ruins there and then on to Puno and Lake Titicaca. Patricia is so Catholic she couldnt even tell her mom she was going to lake Titicaca because of the name. That's funny. But not as funny as your son farting in her face at one of the seven wonders of the world.

Love you!!!

your favorite daughter

I told you she was a good storyteller. Patricia is a young woman Deena works with who tagged along on the trip. We were relieved because we weren't real thrilled with Deena going into Lima all by herself.
