Hi evryone, it is Nitzan.
My mother already told you about the places we visited after Huaraz, but I want to add some things.In the Boogie I felt wierd because we all laughed,and screamed,and the driver was like normal and driving likeon a normal road.But the last 2 jumps and turns were really strong and bumpys,Shachar cried a little bit because they were so strong and he got hurt, but for me they were fun! Omer and I sat in the front beside the driver but the last bit Omer changed with Shachar (my little brother). Huacachina was super fun!!!!!!!!!!! When we finished to do the Boogie tour my brother(Omer) and I said it was the most fun atraction in our life (for now, I don't know yet). After Nazca we drove on a night bus of 14 hours!!!!! But when we waited at the bus-stop for the bus to arrive and he was one and a half hour late!
finally we arrived to cusco,after 1,000 turns and Shachar throwing-up.
we found a hostel called Gran Hotel Machupichu.
that day we stayed in thehttp://www.travelblog.org/Admin/edit-entry.html?diary_id=440782 hotel to get used to the hight and at the evning we went out to
eat dinner. the next day we went out to travel in Cusco it is a big city, people call it the Inca capital, because there is all the Inca sites,like the Inca Trail,or the Tambo-Machay and more... Now you probably want to know who is the Inca, right? The Inca was the king of peru in1500 A.D. He was the king for like 130 years until the Spanish conquerd.
After a couple of days we went for one day to 2 different places,Moray,Salleneras. Moray is a place that scientists think the Inca did there plants expeiriences so like,where can a potato grow better in high places or low,in the sun or in the dark, things like that.It looks like a spiral shape alittle bit .Then we visited Salleneras.It is aplace where there is tons of pools where the people grow salt each family has one pool in total there is 356 or 365 pools. Then we went back to the hotel. The next day we drived to a small town called Pisac.It had a market the day we were there so entered it was a giant market Omer and Shachar baught whistles. Then after the market we went on a
very short trek for 2 hours. After that day we were exausted we came back to the hotel eat dinner and went to sleep.
After acouple of days more in Cusco then we took a bus 6 hours till MACHU PICHU
it was a super boring drive Shachar vomited! Then we finally arrived to Machu Pichu the next morning wee took a short bus ride until the entrance to Machu Pichu and from there we walked we saw the old Inca buildings and we took many, many pictures. It was marvoulas!!!!! I always wanted to be and see the Machu Pichu! then the next we drived back to Cusco, and We are happy.
(the days are not in order) Miss you all Nitzan
