About the Book
Join Team Dixie Chickens, a husband and wife team from Charleston, SC on the 2012 charity rally known as the Mototaxi Junket. We drove 2000 kilometers across Peru, from the mountains through two deserts and nearly to the Ecuadoran border on a mototaxi, the tiny 3-wheeled sofa bikes used mostly for in-town transport in Peruvian cities--definitely not a cross country 4x4! We did the rally to raise funds for Practical Action, a non-profit working to improve access to clean water and electricity, as well as support traditional Andean farming communities. Stories from the road, introductions to our fellow Junket participants, photographs of the stunning scenery, and inspiration for new adventures can all be found here.
