A journey through time at the top of the world

Machu Picchu Flying Jayhawks trip
A small group of Jayhawks spent six days in the Inca Highlands of Machu Picchu, Cusco and the Sacred Valley on a recent Flying Jayhawks trip.

Travelers experienced the culturally rich region of the Peruvian Andes from Oct. 18-23, 2015. They enjoyed a richly educational journey to “The Lost City of the Incas” with the expert guidance of an Orbridge expedition leader, visited pre-Columbian temples, toured the ancient Inca capital of Cusco and experienced the magic of a sunrise on the “top of the world.” They also participated in an Andean healing ceremony with a local Shaman.

Our group of alumni travelers included Bob, c’68, g’60, PhD’84, and Lois Nelson, c’78; Chris, c’70, and Joyce Saricks, c’70; and Anne Marie DeGeorge, ’83, and her father, Richard DeGeorge.
