Cusco/Machu Picchu


Wow! What an amazing two days these have been!


Friday morning we woke up in Lima, had breakfast, and then Diana & I went on a walk. We discovered that the area in front of our hotel was a dog park! JACKPOT! The view down to the ocean was also beautiful. The picture shows a view from the side walk looking down to a resturant that juts out in to the ocean.
We left Lima and flew to Cusco around 10. It is beautiful and the people here are so friendly! We had a great tour guide the whole time named Harvey. The hotel we have been staying at here is called the Monasterio. It was actually a Monastery converted in to a hotel. It is very very beautiful.

Here is a picture of us in the courtyard after we arrived.
In the afternoon we visited two cathederals and then had time to walk around the main square for some shopping and for getting harrassed by locals selling dolls, hats, belts, ect.
See below:















Here is me in the main square. It is so nice and different that anything we are used to.
One last picture from Friday....I met a lady with a llama and a baby, so I had to have my picture taken!







I am going to bed now...I am exhausted. I will get up in the morning and tell you all about Machu Picchu and the combined 7 hours we spent on a train today!
Thanks for keeping up with us! We miss you all and can't wait to tell you all of the stories!
