I was looking at the local weather in the locations I will be visiting and am surprised by what I have found. The daytime temperatures range from 65 degrees to 94 degrees, with the night temperatures ranging from 34 degrees to 68 degrees! It is currently winter in Peru, but apparently the jungle is pretty hot this time of year! And the higher elevations can get really cold at night. I'm glad I looked before I pack :)
I was also looking at the time in Peru. Part of the year, Peru is in the same time zone as the eastern US. They do not participate in daylight savings time, so part of the year, they are one hour off. Right now, Peru is 1 hour behind the eastern US. Also, being closer to the equator, the days are less and 12 hours right now! It will be strange having shorter days.
If you have not done so, you should scroll down to the bottom of my blog. I recently added a couple pictures. I will likely work on the layout of this page, so be sure to check it out. Also, there is a button you can click on to "follow" me on this blog. Not sure what exactly happens, but maybe it gives you messages that I have posted a new blog? You can also post comments that I will get when I check my blog, so feel free to write. I will be checking email & facebook when I can, too (email is the priority).
