From our incredible jungle trip, we returned to Cusco exhausted and very smelly Thursday evening (7ish). Hostel Andrea did not have one of the nice rooms that we had previously stayed in so we shared a room with a young French couple. They had just arrived from Arequipa after a challenging bus ride. They were the perfect people to share a room with as they were exhausted as well and planned to be in bed early. So, after a nice nearby dinner, the entire room was asleep by no later than 10:00.
Friday, the 6th, was a relaxing catchup day. We explored Cusco a little more. Had an awesome lunch with Alpaca. It was Good Friday so there were some small parades and things. We changed hostel rooms so we could get a clean shower. We had all of our clothes washed - a nice service offered by the hostel for only $2.5 soles per kilogram and we had 3.5 kilograms of gross stuff. Most of the basic stuff.
Saturday the plan was to start the trek to Machu Picchu. Pasta and sauce for dinner and early to bed. Tomorrow we journey to Machu Picchu!
