While there are hints Amazing Race goes to Chile, it's unknown if they went to Peru to Machu Picchu.

In any event:

Rain complicates Machu Picchu tourist rescue

‘Chaos’ as helicopters struggle to reach travelers stranded at historic ruins

Other info:

At the bus station the other day we heard about the death of an Argentine tourist and guide at Machu Picchu. Today I had a chance to look it up and found out about the rains which have affected thousands (locals and tourists), blocked the railroad, and damaged the site. Unfortunately, the few articles I read focused on the tourists, providing little information on the Inca trail support staff or residents in the surrounding communities.

They did go to Valparaiso as did amazing race.. I heard it is a unique port city spread over 42 hills (cerros), several hours west of Santiago. The city has a colorful, bohemian vibe owing to its historic buildings, mediterranean climate, and abundant street art. The lower city (business district) is laid out in a standard, orderly manner, while the cerros are covered with colorful, differently [...]

now they are going to Napal and India. So they gone through South America, Africa, All through Europe, Israel Jordan. They have more or less run their own amazing race.

It seems to diaster getting from Napal to India which they found very dirty and full of protesters with torches. to get home they need to go through Europe but they have 5 weeks for it to clear up.

Finally after eight months my daughter and son in law arrived in the United States today. I am quite relieved! They seem to have lots of luck out so they are a good candidate for amazing race 17 assuming luck and experience is what Amazing Race wants but I doubt it.

I was always reading the Internet where were or had been and what when wrong after they were there. Nothing much happened in Equator.

On the other hand, they just the missed the floods at Manchu Picchu in Peru. They were much closer in time to the earthquake in Chile. There was another earthquake in Argentina but it was not a real problem for anyone.

There were flood in Brazil but they missed those ones. They thing that definitely worried me was the video's of some of the bus rides that were on the edge of the road lots of places in South America. They learned Spanish before they went and became proficient or at least my son in law became very proficient.

They did have plane problems in Brazil but still made it to their next destination. Not because of the floods in Brazil.

Because of all the plane problems in Brazil they almost missed their flight to Nepal. Why they wanted to Nepal, I have no idea. The original plane landed in India and they then flew to Nepal where they hiked for a month of in Nepal highlands. The girl that got killed in Nepal was after they left, perhaps or perhaps not. They put list of favorite/ least favorite things. Beth Ann's worst thing was being glared at in Nepal.

They took a bus into India and rioting and fires on the border of Nepal on the way. Why did they do that video they sent? I guess because they made it ok or we wouldn't have gotten the video.

They of course saw the Taj Mahal but apparently other areas off the beaten track. They were invited to dinner and a lot of people apparently wanted to take there picture with them because they don't see white people.

Another thing people from India wanted to do was practice their English. I guess they wanted to work for

Microsoft (LOL).

I was worried sick about the volcanic ash because they went through London on the way but on the way back it was New Deli to New York. So both me and they lucked out again or least they didn't have to take the chance of flying through London and the potential ash cloud.

Other info on the trip

Favorite country

Marc

Argentina, Peru

Beth Ann Its hard to choose but I was surprised how much I liked Bolivia,

Brazil and India, all countries I didn't want to go to.

Favorite Large City both Buenos Aires

Favorite new food Marc Piranha Beth Ann Masala dosa (India)

Most Useful items Swiss army Knife, netbook earplugs, bowl with cutting board.

Next place they want to vist Turkey, Indonesia, trans-Siberian railway,China

Most surprising part of the trip for them and me they didn't get robbed, injured or assaulted. Before leaving they watched the movies Taken and Transsiberian.

Lots of more things like the toilet on the train in India is open and falls on the track.

Other Trips I may have mentioned they have taken:

There other trip for they honeymoon was a safari in Africa. The Safari is in the highlands. They did this in part to get use to the altitude for the successful climb on Mt. Kilimanjaro.

They also took altitude sickness pills which helped. Other people swam on the coast which does not help with the climb. You can also take pills to help with altitude sickness. People who didn't take the altitude sickness pills had much less success on the climb. Only six out of twelve made it to the top It included my daughter and son in law. They stayed only a few minutes. Going down was fast and easy of course and they could not wait to get off the mountain.

One honeymoon couple, the husband made all the arrangements and didn't tell his wife. They did pretty bad. I wondered if they are still married?

The trip before that they went to Israel and Jordan and when they got there was a war on. Absolutely no one told that they were in Israel.

They trip before that they started at Scotland and went down through Europe to Spain.

I don't think anyone that has traveled as much as they have can get picked. They are ready to watch Amazing Race 16 and see how many places they recognize in South America.
