Hola! This is Laura Beth, here to write about our long journey to Lima, Peru! My trip started at 5:30 on Saturday morning, when my mom and I left for the Sioux Falls airport. Two uneventful flights later we arrived at the Los Angeles airport, where we met up with my cousin, Jeanne, (who came with me as a guardian, since my mom is a teacher winner,) and Nellie, Elliot, and Wyatt, and their parents. Once we had all gotten to know each other a little, we boarded the plane to begin our eight-hour flight to Peru! The flight, however, didn’t seem like it was eight hours. We each had a TV screen on the back of the seat in front of us, and we could watch movies, TV shows, listen to music, or play games. The flight attendants gave us meals and beverages, along with pillows and blankets. They all spoke Spanish, so it was very interesting to try and understand what they were saying! I was very surprised how easily we could communicate by pointing and smiling, along with using simple English and Spanish phrases.
We arrived in Lima at about eleven o’ clock. We grabbed our luggage and some even experimented with the vending machine, using different currency. By one in the morning we were on a bus to our hotel!

Hi, it’s Lijah. We have arrived in Lima and to my surprise I am actually not that tired. I usually cannot sleep on planes but this time I was sound asleep on both plane rides. We arrived at the Peruvian airport and we noticed everyone had medical masks on. We asked around and supposedly they were very big on keeping swine flu out. This was kind of scary to know that it was a possibility. We went to get our luggage; we got ours just fine, but Dewey and Tim were not having much luck. Finally after a while it came through. Then Dewey and Tim also got the random security check. They were not having much luck in the Peruvian airport!
From the airport we were bused to our hotels. The night life of Peru was amazing. There were a lot of casinos and bright tourist lights that lit the city. We also saw many wild dogs that roamed the parks and alleys. There were these two specific dogs that were running in circles around a big park statue. They were barking and rolling around. It was quite humorous!
