1. The train to Machu Picchu follows the Urubamba River through the Sacred Valley, then descends into cloud forest. It is a magnificent ride through wonderful scenery, all of which can be viewed through the Vistadome's huge windows and skylights.

  2. Whether rainy or sunny, the Incan ruins at Machu Picchu are a mesmerizing site. I'd waited my entire life to see this site, and when I finally got there it didn't disappoint. To read about my perpetual round-the-world travels, visit my blog, http://holeinthedonut.com.

  3. The Circuito Magico del Agua, a Water Park in the Parque de la Reserva in Lima, Peru is listed in the Guinness World Book of Records as the largest fountain complex in the world. It has 41 fountains in different sizes and shapes, some of which are for viewing only, but others that invite interaction, and one upon which a laser light show is projected three times each night. The park is open Wednesday through Sunday and on holidays, from 3 p.m.to 10:30 p.m. and the laser shows happen at 7:15, 8:15, and 9:30 p.m. Admission is a mere 4 Peruvian Soles, or about $1.50 per person in U.S.dollars.

  4. In addition to being perhaps the friendliest, most welcoming city in Peru, Lima offers myriad opportunities to experience the culture of the country. Religious festivals where icons of the virgin are carried through the streets for hours on end, traditional dance performances, and street musicians abound in the historic old city around Plaza de Armas, which is also home to some of the most magnificent colonial architecture in the country.

  5. At this rodeo, held twice each year in the town of Cobano on the Nicoya peninsula of Costa Rica, bull riding is the least entertaining part of the problem. After the cowboy finishes his ride, the bull is left loose in the ring, which is filled with (mostly drunken) bullfighter wannabees. You've heard of slapping the bull on the ass? Well, the point of this rodeo seemed to be to slap the bull between the horns without getting gored or trampled. Some come fully equipped with bullfighters capes and fake swords; others just don super hero costumes, apparently convinced they are indestructible. At this rodeo, they carried two people out of the ring. Crazy! To read more about my round-the-world travels, visit my blog, http://holeinthedonut.com.
