It's Day 3 on the Duke Alumni Association (DAA)  "Treasures of Peru" trip to Machu Picchu and Lake Titicaca and I think we've had about 9 hours of sleep.  As was the case with the first  DAA trip that I took as the University representative two years ago, the travel logistics have been perfect (knock on wood) and the 24 alums on the trip are fabulous!  Everyone is thoroughly enjoying getting introduced to the history and beauty of Peru and to getting to know each other.  The classes represented by the alums range form 1959 to 2005, with some folks coming from as close to campus as Chapel Hill and as far away as San Diego, with Trinity, Fuqua and the Medical School represented.
