In January 2005 my Dad & I visited South America on a 3 week trip to Argentina & Peru. It all came about after an invite from a friend to attend his wedding in Buenos Aires. I wanted to combine this with a trip to Peru to see Macchu Pichu, the famous Inca city in the clouds. When I told my Dad about my plans he said he'd always wanted to see Macchu Pichu too so we agreed to go together.
We both took hundreds of photos & I kept a sketchbook of the entire journey. This blog will be a selection of photos & drawings that show the highlights of our South American odyssey.
We leave London Heathrow at 7.15pm on January 4th, 2005. The flight to Buenos Aires goes via Madrid. We depart Madrid at 11pm & cross the Atlantic through the night.
Wednesday morning we fly in over Paraguay & the Tigre Delta into Buenos Aires Airport, Ezeiza.
