Message received from Mehran Nojan in Peru at 5:33pm on Wednesday, January 14 via Satellite phone: We sailed across Lake Titicaca today. We stopped at a few floating islands. Now we have arrived at the island that we are staying overnight. It is called Amantani Island. We are staying with local families. At this point the kids are playing with the locals. They are playing soccer and they are having fun. We are going to have dinner at 7 and apparently there is a party for us at 8. We are all doing well and I will be in touch tomorrow.
