Mission Trip – Day 9

After Machu Picchu, we were ready to head home.  We woke up early and jumped on a flight back to Lima.

Next we headed past the soccer stadium to a park of water fountains.

The fountains were pretty cool and a great way to cap off a great mission trip.

Half the group headed to the airport to head home, but the Texas folks got a few rooms to share at a hotel to get some showers and sleep. Our flight left at 4:30 am, which means that we really only had 2 hours to sleep, since we needed to leave for the airport at 12:30am.
