I stayed at SJ from Feb 22nd to 26th. On 26th, I left SFO to Peru to join the South America Tour. In this tour, I went to Lima, Cusco, Machu Picchu, Uyuni, and La Paz. After the tour, I left La Paz on Mar 8th, and stayed at Buenos Aires for sightseeing and meeting my friends from 8th to 12th. I moved to Iguassu to see Iguassu Falls from Brazil side and Argentina side. After Iguassu, I stayed in Vegas to go to the concert of Pitbull, see Grand Canyon, and hang out with my friends from 15th to 19th. And finally, I came back to SJC and stay in SJ from 19th to 23rd. I left SJ on Mar 23rd for Japan.
