Our friends J & M

Here's a picture of Jennifer, Masa, and Justine from when we hiked Temescal Canyon with them. We were all supposed to be getting ready for our big trips, but when we got back to LA, we ate pizza and drank margaritas. I hope those extra calories are helping out on the Inca trail!

Jen and Masa's Blog

As many of you know, our good friends (the other J & M) are also travelling. We got to hang out with them on their last night in the US before heading off to Toronto, Canada to catch a flight to Lima, Peru! We also got a really gross IHOP breakfast with them before they left, so their last taste of American food sucked. Note to self: have Mom make breakfast on our last day (HINT HINT!). If you're interested in keeping up on the other J & M, check out their blog here. I've also added it to the side bar, in case you want to check it out later. Their itinerary will take them through South East Asia, as well, but try as we might, we couldn't figure out a way to meet up with them because our travel times were so different. The closest we'll be to each other overseas is when we're in China and they're in Thailand. For a while, we were hoping to meet up near the friendship bridge, between China and Vietnam, but it probably won't work out.
