The Road to Machu Picchu

My name is Azan Gotsman and I am 23 years old. I graduated from a university as an IT engineer. I live with my parents in Southern California. 

Now, we are visiting Peru with my two college friends. I am very excited to travel throughout the world, and to learn about different cultures and new people.

It is the raining season in Peru. Today, we are going to Machu Picchu, it will be a tough trip for us. After the trail, we will go up the hill by bus. 

On the remaining days of the trip we will ride in an ATV in Cuscu and go to a salt cave. The Rainbow Mountains is another destination in this trip, and I am curious about it, because we will have to get up at 3:30 AM for this. It's a little tiring, but I think we'll see nice things. Then we will go to Lima for three days. Lastly, we will visit the oasis village "Huacachina", a holy place where the Incan gurus lived - a town in the middle of the desert, and we are going to stay there for two days. I think it will be a different experience.

I am not sure what to do when I return to California after this trip. But the thing I want to do most is to work in a job that will make me happy, keep me interested, and will take me somewhere else.
