Visiting Peru

My parents and I visited Peru from June 26 to July 6. We traveled to Lima from Houston IAH, and visited Cusco, Machu Picchu, Manu National Park, and Lima during our stay there. The following series of posts describe our journey in greater detail.

My parents and I departed from Houston Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) at about 4:30pm via Terminal D (which is connected to the E gate we actually flew out of). Since we arrived about 90 minutes early, we waited in the KLM Lounge just across the pedestrian bridge in Terminal C. The lounge was comfortable with small snacks available in buffet style. Most people were watching the end of the World Cup match that was on. We headed towards our gate about 45 minutes before boarding.

The flight of 6.5 hours passed quickly, spent mostly watching movies on the on-board entertainment system. Upon arriving in Lima, the gate and immigration area were easy to navigate. They now do their visa electronically, so the yellow entry form we were advised to hold onto from multiple sources was no longer given out. As we were departing for Cusco early the next morning, we stayed at the Wyndham Costa del Sol airport hotel, directly across the street from the baggage claim area. The room was quiet and comfortable, and we quickly fell asleep.

Read the next post about our journey to Cusco the following day.
