The Journey Has Begun - South America Here We Come

The statue of Christ the Redeemer, also known as Christ of the Andes, towers over the city of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

The Inca Trail. As one hiker observed, "27 switchbacks and then it gets hard."

An Amazon tributary high in the Andes.

As many of you have already guessed, the Silver Fox and I are on the road again. It had been my intention to make no comments about the trip until we returned home. Brand new posts, recipes and photos are set for automatic release during the month of October, and I had hoped to sneak away at night and respond to your comments, so my absence would go unnoticed. It is, however, getting more difficult to get computer time and despite my good intentions, I'm falling behind in my response to your comments. Please know my heart is with you all and I appreciate the loyalty you have shown to my blog. I will respond when I can and catch up with you when we return. The trip is so much more than I had anticipated. We are having a wonderful time and have seen some truly breathtaking sights. It's hard to believe that there is still much more to come. How lucky can one gal get?

What a wonderful time you'll have, Mary! We were in that part of the world in 2008, and Macchu Picchu is one of my favourite memories. I look forward to hearing about our trip!

Hi Mary, I'm a subscriber and avid reader of your blog. As a Brazilian who lives in Rio de Janeiro (I've been temporarily living in South Korea though), I truly wish you have a wonderful time in my city! I miss it myself :) Can't wait to read all about it!

Know you're having a great time. I was just talking to someone about Rio a few days ago. One of the most beautiful places I've ever been. Enjoy and have a safe trip!

Mary: How did I miss this post? I know that you and the Silver Fox like to get out of town in the fall and suspected you were going somewhere exciting and wonderful. I wish you an interesting and delicious trip.
Happy trails and safe travel.
