Next Friends Meeting: Tuesday, October 2, 2018 at 7 pm

Speakers: Uwe and Karen Schroeter

Topic: Trekking to Choquequirao, Sister City of Machu Picchu

In April of 2015 Albuquerque residents and avid hikers, Uwe and Karen Schroeter traveled to Peru for a self-guided 5-day trek to/from Choquequirao, the sister city of Machu Picchu. After completing the trek, Uwe and Karen visited Machu Picchu twice over two days, including for a hike up to Cerro Machu Picchu that required an advance registration. This presentation will focus on a picture presentation of the  Choquequirao Trek with additional information about the logistics of visiting and hiking at Machu Picchu.

Uwe Schroeter works as a full-time translator from English into German. In his spare time, he enjoys hiking, camping, travel and yoga.  Uwe is fortunate to be able to share these hobbies with his wife Karen who works at Wells Fargo.

Space is limited to 50. We recommend you arrive early.
Doors close when we reach capacity or at 7pm.
