I had a couple hours to wander around the center of Cuzco, a striking amalgam of the Inca capital and the colonial city, and take come photos for you!
Not bad for a $15/night hostel. Which is more than I can say for the Aussie showing off his boney chest covered in monkey hair!
Do you know the Incan-Peruvian Diablo Clown-God of Trains and Travel? Yeah, I don’t either.
Slightly higher than Wayna Picchu but without the vertigo or additional ticket cost, Intipunku offers Inca Trail hikers their first look at Machu Picchu.
Good morning! Here’s some aggressive fog threatening to swallow large pieces of the Andes Mountains.
Starting before 5am this LONG day took me from chilly Cusco via train to revered Machu Picchu, with plenty of Brazilians and llamas along the way.
Oh yeah, Susan man! I know where your hostel is. I got this city memorized. No way will we wander around totally lost like idiots for hours on end. Trust me! I’m Eduardo.
Cusco (pop. 500,000) is the high-elevation (11,000 ft.) stopping point between Lima and Machu Picchu. It’s one day here, then off to MP tomorrow!
Day 1 of my Machu Picchu trip started ridiculously early with a 3:30am cab ride to the Lima airport. Destination: Cusco, 5+ hours from Machu Picchu.
I tried to find a reason to not go to Machu Picchu but came up short. So…we’re going to Machu Picchu!!
After 6 weeks here in Lima, Peru, it may not seem like I’ve done very much, but I disagree!
Some photos from a leisurely visit to Parque Kennedy and El Parque del Amor here in Miraflores (Lima).
Perfect for kids, the “largest fountain complex in the world” is something inexpensive to do most nights of the week here in Lima.
Adios California. Hola Peru!
Here’s what hours of alone time behind the wheel will get you: magic! (You’re welcome.)
What do people do in the desert? Nothing! At least, if you’re us two. (And by “nothing” I really mean “everything”.)
Without revealing at whose house this happened, here’s my tale of enduring someone I hope to never become.
First time for everything: Of all the people I’ve met on airplanes and exchanged information with, Kirk is the only one I’ve ever seen later on.
Telluride was a whirlwind of snowfall, new friends, and a dog like I’ve never seen.
After my touristy Mekong Delta tour, I took a 3-hour bus to TraVinh to meet my coworker, Nhüng, near her hometown. I will not miss this bus.
