Pretrip planning with pups, petunias, and patience

It’s taken a long time to hammer out the details of my trip (luckily, I’ve had some free time on my hands lately), but I’ve finally solidified the bulk of my plans.  And it’s going to be amazing… To wit:

8MAY – land in Lima
8MAY-9MAY – Stay in Miraflores
9/10MAY – Take bus overnight from Lima to Arequipa (this is the time where, if you have a rosary close by, please clutch it and think of me)
10-13MAY – Stay in Arequipa
13MAY – Take bus from Arequipa to Puno (this is a much shorter trip and not overnight.  So grab that rosary again, but no need to hold it quite as tightly as the first bus trip.)
13-16MAY – Stay in Puno/Lake Titicaca
16MAY – Take bus from Puno to Cusco
16-18MAY – Stay in Cusco
18-21MAY – Trek to Machu Picchu
21-23MAY – Stay in Cusco
23MAY – Fly to Quito, Ecuador
23-25MAY – Stay in Quito
25-27MAY – Stay in Otavalo
27-30MAY – Still haven’t decided what to do with this time…
30MAY – Fly to Galapagos
30MAY-4JUN – Stay in Galapagos (Santa Cruz Island)
4JUN – Fly to Guayaquil
4-5JUN – Stay in Guayaquil
5JUN – Fly to Lima
5-7JUN – Stay in Lima
7/8JUN – Fly to Houston

We’ll see how the interwebs work in the various towns (I’m already planning on having little to no access in the Galapagos b/c it’s notoriously slow there) so that I can send pictures intermittently.

While I’m gone, my mom is taking care of the pups and petunias. I’ll miss watching the babies sunbathe on my balcony.
