Day 3- Cusco

Posted by Lisa on July 24th, 2007 — Posted in Travel

On July 5, we left Lima to travel to Cusco. As soon as we got to our hotel, they had us sit in the reception area and drink coca tea to help ward off altitude sickness. We then decided to walk around town for a while, before our city tour. Cusco was absolutely beautiful. It’s how I actually thought Lima would be. After a nice leisurely stroll around town, we headed back to the hotel for our city tour. The city tour was fantastic. We learned a little bit about the history of Cusco and the Incas, drove all around Cusco and explored the ruins. We then had a nice light dinner at the hotel and off to bed. Our 4am wake-up call was going to be EARLY, but who cares, when you’re off to Machu Pichuu!

This place sounds like a “must see”, even if it’s just to get some of that “fountain of youth”!
