We drove down to Miami to meet the rest of our gigantic family and on Sunday, December 22, during one of the busiest travel times of the year, we all boarded a plane to Lima, Perú.I was born in Lima, Perú in March of 1981 and my family moved out of there in 1989, so any chance I get to go back to my homeland is very special to me. This time I was excited not only to be going with my husband and two sons, but also with my 3 brothers, their families and my parents.

New Years was pretty fun too, we danced the night away at the Regatas Club on the coast of Lima and had the best time welcoming the new year while the kids all stayed home with the nanny eating grapes and dressed in yellow with our their beloved nanny, Normita.

The weather was chilly and humid and the history embedded in every breath was a feast to our eyes from the moment we stepped out of the Cusco airport. We stayed at a really nice hotel, Casa Andina. From there, we took excursions everyday and visited the most breathtaking sites I have ever seen in my entire life including, The Sacred Valley, Ollantaytambo and of course, Macchu Picchu.

I want to thank my family for being so open to spending this amazing time together and most of all, I want to thank my mom and dad for giving us this gift of memories and anecdotes that will last a lifetime.
