So it seems like we’ll be in Peru sometime in the next six months, and it only occurred to me now that we’ll have time to go sandboarding at Cerro Blanco. We had initially planned to do Everest Base Camp this summer, but decided to start with the Inca Trail because our work schedules are a bit complicated and the Lukla airport is slightly less than reliable. Next year — but for now, climbing runes and hurling ourselves down sand dunes just in time for festival season sounds fine to me.
