View 2012 PRINCESS = RIO TO SAN FRANCISCO on hasbeen's travel map.

MACHU PICHU BACK TO THE HOTEL BY TRAIN WAS MOSTLY AT NIGHT. A BIT OF A LET DOWN, BUT WE HAD SEEN IT ON THE WAY THERE.

it rained on this trip, for the first time in a long time.

I was not the only one nuts enough to try taking photos out the windows. The people here often have a little ornament on the roof. A bull & bells - to ward off evil maybe.

Anyway I never did get a good picture of one.

Only just made it to the ship on time and the ships staff gave us a great welcome home. Actually coming off the ship to give us towels & drinks. It was quite the performance.

And - was in worth it.

I think so & well done to the Princess staff & shore excursion people who made it happen.
