    A quick hello from Amsterdam, it's sunny and in the 70s here, but I am not allowed out of the airport [​IMG]. Just waiting for my final flight home, then I can relax [​IMG]

    It's been an easy journey though so no complaints, I hope you are enjoying your Tuesday ......

    Yes, it was huge when I flew through there many years ago. They only have an hour to make their connection, I'm hoping they do.

    Not so good. My new streaming television isn't working today for some reason, and I don't want to mess with it right now so I'm watching DVDs. Well, I'm not really watching them, but they are playing and I look at the screen every now and then. I don't know what's going on the with television, and am just hoping it fixes itself. It boots up, tries to connect, and then reboots, over and over. Oh well. Somewhere, someone is dying and they're probably having a worse day than I am.

    We are so having a great day! :) TS Cindy who was forecast to give us alot of trouble...decided to go play somewhere else and we are so thankful for this. There will no flooding in our home town this time.

    We are having some nice wind gusts off and on, some light rain now and then...and some sunshine too. My Honey is loving it because he can't stand to be cooped up inside, and now he doesn't have to be. :)

    About the only thing that TS Cindy has brought is some soreness in our old bones...but that is quickly going away too.

    Finally got our clothes dryer fixed. Didn't want to go to the local laundromat, so waited til today, when it was fixed. Have three loads to do. Will have to call marine shop tomorrow and see how our boat repair is progressing. Was told on Monday that it would be ready by Friday for this weekend. Wife has four days off.........yahoo! Funny, but put a new Thread on a relocation forum asking about Cheyenne, Wyoming and Rapid City, S.D.. Both, we are considering moving to in about two years. After explaining what we were like (love Western/cowboy stuff), and that we had lived south of Denver for 5 1/2 years, some replies wondered how we ever got to Florida.

    Just saw the official count on the attendance for our 4th of July fireworks here in Nashville, it
    was over 240,000. Kind of glad we didn't go downtown this year.

    We did go the local minor league baseball game on the 3rd and they did a nice firework
    display after the game, so we got our firework fix for the year.

    A quick hello and goodnight from Lima, the flight went well they served us three meals, two were curries, the other an Englsh cream tea plus a couple of G&Ts,........ we arrived 20 minutes early.

    Our first impressions of the people here are good, the passport control and other staff at the airport were very welcoming, and Marcos the owner of the flat where we are staying for the night is an angel, nothing is too much trouble, he will give us a lift back to the airport in the morning where we fly to Cusco, which is a high altitude place, so will be a test.... [​IMG]

    I will catch up with you all tomorrow, if you don't hear from me for a few days, I have succumbed to altitude sickness [​IMG]

    I seem to have travelled back in time some 6 hours so are probably nearer to US time, its 10:30 pm here at the moment....my internal clock is all awry, so I will try and sleep now [​IMG] .....

    Enjoy your ...... Wednesday/Thursday or whatever day it is..........

    Hi everyone, just checking in at 7pm local time, our flight arrived late morning to a gloriously sunny day in he 70s.. the apartment we are staying in for the next 4 nights is a wonderful 350 year old building with an inner courtyard, and our rooms have views over the town of Cusco.

    We have been drinking Coca tea all day, they even hand out coca leaves at the airport here, we have followed the advice given about not doing too much and eating mainly carbohydrates in small portions, and no alcohol. We're also taking Diamox and high strength Ibroprofen, to hopefully stave off the altitude sickness. [​IMG]

    Both our blood oxygen levels dropped to the low 70s from their usual 95/98 on arrival, they have stabilised around 85 at the moment, with a pulse rate permanently high in the 90s, which you can feel.

    Hopefully we will both wake up in the morning [​IMG] ........

    .I am feeling confused and exhausted now so will go for a lie down......I hope you are all having or have had a good Thursday....

    My day was peaceful and uneventful, thank God! I took the dog for a walk, went to the store and let the rain come in my windows with the good breeze. Aired out my apartment! It was a nice day.

    Today went well, it's been a lovely summery day with sunny periods and in the mid 70s, I spent the day in the garden pruning and having accumulated a huge pile of trimmings, I had a bonfire this afternoon and burnt most of it, I am not even sure if bonfires are legal here anymore, but I filled the neighbourhood with smoke for a while[​IMG] ....... I am relaxing now with a tot of spiced dark rum, which I bought in Aldi the other day in a mad moment........

    Hope you are all having a good day...

    That looks like a beautiful beach, @Terry Page , and it seems like the whole family is having a great time in the water, so it must be pretty warm, too.

    We had a pretty good day today. this morning, we went to the fitness center and exercised, then came home had lunch, and took a nice nap.
    My mini-trampoline arrived today, and Bobby put it together for me and set it up in the exercise room. It has the safety bars on it ; so I feel pretty comfortable and safe using it. My feet are staying on the trampoline (at least for now); and it only will take a few minutes before my legs are tired; so it is going to be a great piece of exercise equipment.
    I turned on Pandora and put on the bluetooth headphones, and had a good time back there bouncing. I think that this would be a suitable exercise for just about anyone, because you can tailor it to your own physical abilities, and bounce as easily or as vigorously as you want to . Even little bouncing is supposed to be great for cleaning out the lymph system, and helping your body rid itself of toxins.

    I spent the day eating too much. Oh well, that was just today, tomorrow is another day. I see that not too many folks are posting in the Happy Talk section.

    It rained hard from sometime in the middle of the night until about 9 this morning. I had to drive to Fort Smith for an MRI at 1 pm. On the way home I stopped at a bakery and bought a box of mixed goodies.
