PERU & MACCHU PICHU Wednesday, August 14 Nicholas Pappas and his wife, Mary Ellen Lynch, will share images and background of their 3 and 1/2-week trip to Peru in 2009. Their adventure began with a 4-day trek from Cusco, Peru, along the Inca Trail to Macchu Pichu, where they spent 2 full days in the ruins; Inca culture will be detailed in the presentation. Their journey also included a trip over the beautiful altiplano (South American Sierra Desert) to Puno and Lake Titicaca, where they visited the Islas Flotantes (Floating Islands) and indigenous people whose ancestors fled the Spanish invasion in the 16th century. Images of the Colca Canyon, which is twice as deep as the Grand Canyon, will also be shown.
