tomorrow morning i'm flying to atlanta, then mexico city, then lima, then catching a connector to arequipa, and taking a bus to my final destination - the tiny town of moquegua, in the southernmost reaches of the barren peruvian deserts. i will be doing a series of archaeological site surveys, ceramic analyses, and other miscellaneous work related to archaeological excavation, processing, analysis, and interpretation of the wari empire, a pre-colombian empire that flourished before ultimately being conquered and absorbed by the inca.


i'll be in south america two months. it's just me leaving tomorrow - my wife and baby will be meeting me down there in just over two weeks. it's going to suck, but there's no real way around it due to timing of SSN, passports, immunizations, etc.


since there seems to be an interest in traveling/adventure, i'll periodically post updates to this thread with as many cool photos as i can manage (should be plenty.) internet will be limited so i will not be very active on the huddle until early august, just in time for preseason games :)

You are living a dream phillyb.


If you cross paths with an american named Ryan B, tell him Juice from NSB said wat up, he is a good friend of mine and his girlfriend is from the area.  He actually left last week to do something similar, but not sure the specifics.


Anywhoo good luck and safe travels...


ps. and if you cruise through venezuela, tell my bro i said love, respect and see you in a yr.
