*Cuzco, Peru    December 04, 2004:
  Breakfast with a view. As I sat eating my $3 breakfast and sipping on a cup of coca-leaf tea, I had trouble comprehending that I rolled out of my bed in Arcadia, California about 48 hours prior. It is good to know that relatively little amount of time is needed to be able to excape the boring and repetitive life at home and find myself in a place where everything visible is new to these eyes.
