Peru

In May 2008, Rick and Wendy visited Peru—their third time—on a business trip for TechnoServe. Prior trips to Peru had included both pleasure–mainly Lima, Cuzco, and Machu Picchu when they also were visiting their daughter who was living in Chile during her junior year in college–and a volunteer work project for Rick.

In 1967, Wendy had traveled to South America to visit a college friend in Brazil and then together they flew to Lima, Cuzco and Machu Picchu.
