Coronado Island

Hi from Peru! Mar and I have been having a really great time since arriving five days ago (wow, is it just five days?!). We got a crash course in Lima (with a little help from old buddies Jess and Danny), made it to Cusco on the second attempt (thankfully without any *crash* courses– GET IT? CUZ THE WEATHER WAS TOO BAD FOR OUR PLANE TO LAND THE FIRST TIME!), rang in 2016 in the festive Plaza de Armas, hopped out to the Sacred Valley/Aguas Calientes to check out the extraordinary Machu Picchu, and returned to Cusco this morning where we’ve been killing time til our bus leaves at 10 tonight for Puno/Lake Titicaca.

BUT! So much still from California to get around to, so without much commentary at all here are the pics David had on his phone. They’re almost entirely from our brief tour of Coronado Island, but the first one is from the mini party/jam session my second night in town (except I was jet lagged and crashed after ‘jamming’ for about three songs) and the last one is from our first taco stop. Because #importantthings.

San Diego Part One: Ocean Beach & Sunset Cliffs

Merry Christmas Eve! Naturally this whole getting-my-photos-together thing is taking awhile (and did I mention Marlon and I are going to Peru on Monday?!), but here’s what I’ve got from Day One in San Diego. David and I had a lazy morning taking pictures of various items in his kitchen, then he took me to Ocean Beach (where there was a dog beach!). We grabbed some falafel/hummus/et al and headed to Sunset Cliffs (where many of the gifs in the previous post were taken, and where David managed to lure every gull in the vicinity to us with said falafel/hummus/et al). Then we went to some other nearby cliffs to play with tumbleweeds. Wee!
