Red Meat & Black Magic: Exploring South America

Our route ended up being based two things: a plan to hike Machu Picchu for four days in November, and the cheap flights we found around the continent. We would spend a month in Brazil, fly to Peru, take buses south to Cusco, hike Machu Picchu, take more buses south to Bolivia, fly to Chile, and take buses across the continent to Buenos Aires, where our return flight headed back to DC.
