.....and the winner is.

...Kiat who was the first person to e-mail me the correct answers to all 5 clues.

Congratulations Kiat!! You'll have to wait to see what your prize is!

I had several people send me correct answers so kudos to each of you. I hope you had a bit of fun trying to figure out the answers and at the same time, learn a few interesting facts about Peru.

For the record, the correct answers are:

Clue #1: Lima, Peru
Clue #2: Hoatzin
Clue #3: Sacsayhuamán
Clue #4: Chauchilla Cemetary and the Nazca Lines
Clue #5: Ollantaytambo

If you haven't figured out by now, I might as well go ahead and tell you that I'm going to Peru. My itinerary will take me to see the historical sites in and around Lima, canoe down and stay overnight alongside the Madre del Dios river to see the amazing flora and fauna (e.g., the Hoatzin) of the Amazon rainforest, trek (on both foot and horseback) through the Andes to see the Incan monuments strewn throughout -- including Sacsayhuamán, Ollantaytambo, and the world famous Machu Picchu......and last, but not least, make my way to the high plains desert to view Nazcan and Paracas monuments, the infamous Chauchilla mummies and to marvel at the Nazca lines from a Cessna!!

My trip begins in two days and I can't wait!!
