When we left the United States in September of 2009, I left my last remaining bike hanging on a hook in my moms garage. I have longed for its touch ever since.

So I focused my longing for my remaining bike by trying to capture their usefulness and importance to the local communities all around Peru. And, thanks Jessie for waiting for me every time I want to take “another” bicycle photo.

Cheers to you, Peruvian Futból Fanatics.

This was our first big chance to soak up the outdoors here in Peru, and soak it up we did. It rained consistently for the first two days, but in the end it was worth it, and the last day and a half were beautiful.

Photo Essay:  Machu Picchu

How do you get those Machu Picchu photos with no people in them? It really wasn’t difficult at all, since everyone in the Peruvian government is a fan of Unpaved South America dot com. We arrived early via our private helicopter, thus bypassing all the protesters and lines of tourists who were unable to enter the site. Thanks to everyone out there who helped make this possible!
