My wife Kyle and I landed back in Tampa today from our vacation in Peru. I will be writing more about it later (and posting a sh*tload of pictures on Flickr this weekend!) but I need to take care of some business right now before I go finish my last day of vacation out at the pool.
First, thanks again to my guest bloggers for providing such great content - the place stayed very busy while I was out drinking Pisco Sours and dining on brochette of Alpaca...fer reels. Let me close out this special guest set by introducing the band!

Peru - taking time off the J-O-B to spend the M-O-N-E-Y.
