We survived the Inca trail despite the heavy rains. Anyone who has hiked this trail and said it was easy has not done it during the rainy season nor carried a day pack with winter gear. It was an amazing 4 day trek through valleys and mountains. I will post pictures as soon as wifi is better. We are now in Puno, at Lake Titicaca, tomorrow to Lima on Christmas Day to watch Stars Wars and eat Chinese food, like a Jewish Christmas.
